Metro TV Should Simply Yank Obinim Off Screen – Randy Abbey

Host of Metropolitan Entertainment Television (Metro TV)’s “Good Morning Ghana” show, Randy Abbey has urged management of the station to distance itself from the activities of Bishop Daniel Obinim by paying him off and severing any form of contractual links they have with the embattled man of God. According to him, the station’s continuous association with the Bishop by the broadcasting of his programs is embarrassing after the recent shocking and scandalous exposé. Bishop Daniel Obinim, Head Pastor and Founder of the International God’s Way Church was on Monday arrested by the police for allegedly vandalizing property and attacking some staff of Accra-based Hot FM for discussing his extramarital affairs with his former assistant pastor's wife. Bishop Obinim is currently on bail after appearing in court on charges of conspiracy, causing unlawful harm, and causing unlawful damage on Tuesday. Contributing to discussions on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo Morning Show, Randy Abbey posited that though Metro TV is a commercial entity, it would be in the station and most Ghanaians’ interest if it does not allow Obinim to use the television station to advance his ungodly activities. “I have seen him preach on Metro TV and it is shameful for the TV station to continue airing his program. So if there’s any amount due him, the station should simply make the necessary payment and kick him off…Money is driving the media to give platform to some of these things that are being perpetrated by some of our so called men of God. They even go to the extent of fighting for broadcast time…offer monetary inducements just so a colleague pastor can be yanked off…for them to be given that spot,” he stated. He also censured media houses in the country who for the sake of ‘dirty money”, offer these “charlatans” the opportunity to parade their screens just to popularize their activities.
