The Foundation for Generational Thinkers (FOGET) has lauded the Founder and Leader of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Dr. Mensa Otabil, for his consistent and passionate effort to push forward the agenda of African emancipation.
The non-governmental and youth-oriented organisation strongly commended Dr. Otabil for his edge to propagate massages that depict how Africa should be elevated from poverty, reproach, diseases, draughts and adversity.
According to FOGET, Dr. Otabil’s messages on the pulpit have always centred on how Africa can and will rise to be responsible for its development and people without depending on external support.
“The Foundation strongly believes that it is a worthy course being championed by the Man of God to challenge the status quo of the African’s mind and of mental slavery…Dr. Otabil, who prophesied restoration of African economies, stated that one of the biggest burdens of his life was Africa, saying: ‘I was so concerned with our continent. I became African centred and Africa conscious even before I became a preacher, and have made a lot of dramatic changes in my own life to reflect that,'” FOGET said in a statement.
The Leader and Founder of ICGC has also suggested that African leaders should direct their policies toward improving agriculture and ICT because they are catalysts for development.
He argued that his fiscal predictions about the continent are achievable and attainable, only if there are strong policy directions to come about the deserved change and not necessarily depending on external support.
