Is it not absurd that we demanded justice for George Floyd but forgotten JB Danquah, Prof. Benneh & others? Prophet Oduro
General Overseer of the Alabaster International Prayer Ministry Prophet Isaac Oduro is wondering why Ghanaians have not channeled the same energy they used in demanding justice for the late George Floyd, an American citizen who was killed by the police in his home country to their own neighbours in Nigeria and Ghanaians who have been killed in recent times.
The man of God said it was surprising and hypocritical that the state-sponsored events in demanding justice for George Floyd but have refused to demand justice for the likes of the late Prof. Benneh the law professor who was killed in his home, the late Mfantseman MP Ekow Hayford and the Takoradi kidnapped girls.
In a sermon on Sunday, he said he was so amazed a forum was held and a venue hired, decorated and George Floyd’s banner was hanged and justice demanded for him.
“I was wondering and thinking about what kind of absurdity was that. Where is the justice for the Takoradi girls, where is the justice for JB Danquah, where is the justice for Prof. Yaw Benneh, where is the justice for Marcus the one who was killed in Sogakope, where is the justice for Mark Ofori in Takoradi? Where is the justice for all these people including the MP who was recent brutally murdered? Where is the justice? That we can hypocritically divert very quickly justice for George Floyd? That is very interesting. Where did you meet George Floyd, did you attend school with him, and yet you are demanding justice for him?”
“Our brothers and sisters are being killed in Nigeria like rats and no one is crying for justice for them…it is the weakness among black people,” he added.
Prophet Oduro described this as one major problem affecting us as we only appreciate things far from us but refuse to assist our own when they are troubled.
