Pastor Mensa Otabil has finally broken his silence on the Capital Bank issue and unsurprisingly, he’s come armed with all the excuses in the world, refuses to take any responsibility and he’s adding in some religious language to soothe his legion of blind followers.
In a statement released by the preacher addressing the issue, he tries to separate himself from what happened by claiming he wasn’t involved with day to day running of the bank.
“My position (board chairman) was a non-executive role”, Otabil wrote, “I was therefore not involved in the day-to-day management and operations of the Bank.”
Ridiculously, Otabil claims every decision taken was done with the “best of intentions and the interest of various stakeholders in mind.”
If that was so, why the hell did they use taxpayers money meant to save the bank they had collapsed to increase their benefits and then clandestinely to form another bank?
Otabil adds that he has submitted himself to all investigative processes carried out by the state since the bank collapse and had even met EOCO.
He added that he’s ‘concerned’ about those who lost their jobs in the bank collapse and added that “My heart goes out to them and to their dependents. I continue to pray for God’s guidance and sustenance as they navigate the course of their lives.”
He ends by saying he has kept quiet not because he’s guilty but out of respect for the ongoing investigations.
