Leader and founder of the Life Assembly Worship Centre, Christian Kwabena Andrews, alias Osofo Kyiriabosom has revealed that his wife has jilted him following his affair with another woman.
According to the preacher cum politician, the affair has resulted in a beautiful child whom he will soon outdoor to the general public.
In an address to his congregation during a service, the 2020 flagbearer of the Ghana Union Movement (GUM), however, noted that he is unperturbed by the said development.
While defending his actions, he explained that many beautiful women exist and therefore his wife’s decision to abandon their marriage does not bother him.
Speaking in the local Twi dialect, he said, All Ghanaians are watching me so let me set the records straight. As you can see, ‘Osofo Maame’ is no longer in her usual chair, here in church.
“There have been a lot of rumours about her prolonged absence. The truth is she’s no longer here”.
The preacher continued, “The gossips around here, note that this time I’m even speaking on live television.
“She has been hovering all over the place because of my beautiful child who I’ll soon show to you”.
He added that his aggrieved wife is currently seeking legal redress on the back of his affair.
Meanwhile, the comments by the preacher have been met with mixed reactions.
In a series of reactions monitored by MyJoyOnline.com, a few have sympathised with the preacher over his actions.
On the other hand, others have criticised his deeds and questioned his integrity as a preacher.
According to his critics, it is unacceptable for a man of God like him to be involved in such an act of infidelity and be unremorseful about it.
His critics further argue that his conduct sets a bad example for his followers and therefore he must not be proud of his alleged adulterous behaviour.
Christian Kwabena Andrews rose to fame during the 2020 presidential elections where he finished third behind President Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and former president John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
His campaign message, which was largely inspired by the ideologies of Ghana’s first president, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, drew a lot of attention to him, plus a considerable following.
Following his sudden emergence and performance in the race, some pundits and political analysts subsequently touted him as the much talked about ‘third force’ to break the duopoly of the NDC and the NPP.
However, after the 2024 polls, he has been visibly missing in the political discourse.
At the moment, there are no indications as to whether he will put up another fight in the 2024 contest against the NDC and the NPP.
But sources close to the preacher say he is lacing his boots to contest the presidency again in 2024 after his earlier attempt in 2020.
Apart from his political engagements, ‘Osofo Kyiri Abosom’ is known for his sermons about demonic powers and his penchant for breaking into shrines to burn deities and destroy fetish activities.
