Politicians attempted to silence me with $100k – Martey

The immediate past Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana Reverend Professor Emmanuel Martey has revealed that some politicians attempted to bribe him with $100, 000 to prevent him from making negative comments on national issues.

Prof. Martey, who failed to mention whether the politicians were NDC or NPP members alleged that the politicians also promised to give him a mansion at Trasaaco and a V8 vehicle if he remained silent on national issues.

Prof. Martey is a known critic of the governing Mahama-led administration. He has on several occasions attacked the NDC government on various national issues.

He recently attracted abuse from members of the NDC after he promised that the Presby Church will help Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo build Ghana if he wins the presidency in December.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Prof. Martey stated that no amount of attacks, can stop him from commenting on national issues.

“Politicians have tried all means to muzzle me, to get me but they can’t, they come with bribes, fat envelopes, $100, 000…I want everybody to listen that politicians came to my house with $100, 000 and also with the promises that if you keep quiet we will give you a house at Trasaaco with swimming pool.

“We will give you Four Wheel drive [vehicle] but you know what, these people were lucky that I do not have big dogs in my house else I would have released the dogs for them to bite them.”

Prof. Martey added “they have tried all means to muzzle me but they couldn’t and I tell you they can’t.”

The controversial preacher also called on politicians who continuously attack him for his views to desist from such acts.
