Mensa Otabil denies condemning free SHS policy

The General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Dr Mensa Otabil has denied making comments criticising the free Senior High School policy of the opposition NPP.

A plethora of media reports, triggered by a tape recording this week suggested that the respected religious teacher is against the policy proposition which has become a major political issue.

But a statement from the ICGC and signed by a Senior Associate Minister, Rev. Kofi Okyere, said the tape was nothing but a "collection of thoughts edited from a message shared by Pastor Otabil several years ago and pieced together to create the impression that he is taking a stand on the current political debate on the issue of education.
