Outspoken private legal practitioner Maurice Ampaw has called out the founder and leader of the Glorious Wave International Church, Prophet Badu Kobi after the latter made some ethnocentric comments regarding women.
The comments which were met with nationwide outcry and criticisms by several leaders also caused some aggrieved women to protest at the man of God’s church premises.
In a video which has since gone viral, the prophet, who is an avowed critic of the Akufo-Addo administration described Ashanti women as greedy and problematic, who are only interested in material things in marriage; adding that Fante women are also foolish while Ewe women are timid and dormant.
“When you marry an Ashanti lady, you have imported trouble upon yourself, they are greedy. I will not mince words, I have done a research over the years to come to this conclusion” Badu Kobi is heard stating in the video.
He continued: “Though Fante women sometimes are foolish, but Ashanti women? No!”
“Ayibe (Ewe) women are too much dormant but Ashantis, they are greedy.”
But Lawyer Maurice Ampaw who was in agreement with the MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong; having threatened to garner women to beat up Prophet Kobi rubbished the supposed research carried out by the latter and admonished him to apologise for his errant submissions about women belonging to certain ethnicities.
“I always thought Badu Kobi was humble and modest because he’s my friend. Turns out he is very irritating. I think that is what Kennedy Agyapong sought to carry across. The statement made by Badu Kobi which has been widely criticized should have drawn him to apologise.
His submissions were not prophetic so he shouldn’t say he can’t go back on his word. He didn’t carry out any research… who were his research team, what was his sample size…” Maurice Ampaw queried.
“It’s just one of those statements we all make without any substantial evidence…” He added
