One of the daughters of the General Overseer of International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) has written an emotional message to her father on Facebook after the collapse of Capital Bank.
Baaba Otabil in her message on Facebook described the comments made after the collapse of the bank as heart breaking.
“I have seen and read things about my family online. It’s been heart breaking to see some of the words people flying carelessly around but it’s life, I guess.”
She narrated that she called her father immediately she heard the news of the collapse.
“I don’t really know what I was expecting but the first few words out his mouth made me laugh until tears started to sting at the corner of my eyes. I mean, thick deep in his own burdens, He was comforting me and making sure that I was okay! I am just in awe of his strength.”
She said she liked the strength of his father and hoped her children will have her father’s character.
Capital and UT Banks collapsed and was subsequently taken over by GCB Bank.
Most Ghanaians on social media mocked and criticised the known faces of the two banks; Dr Mensah Otabil and Kwabena Amoabeng.
But Baaba Otabil believes this setback is a preparation for better things ahead.
“I know that there are bigger and better and greater things to come.”
Below is the full message
This man right here though, He’s my dad and with everything that’s happened in the last couple of days, He has exuded such grace that I have no doubt that Jesus is about to do something greater in his life. When I first heard what went on, I called him.
I don’t really know what I was expecting but the first few words out his mouth made me laugh until tears started to sting at the corner of my eyes. I mean, thick deep in his own burdens, He was comforting me and making sure that I was okay! I am just in awe of his strength.
The peace that continues to surround him in the midst of chaos. He never stops seeking God and He never stops believing. I have learned so much from my father throughout my years on earth. I want my future husband to be like him.
I want my sons to grow up and be like him. I want my daughters to have his character. Dad, you are the best father a girl could ask for. I love you so so much. You have taught me what it means to be kind, honest, loving, and gracious. May God continue to surround you with his peace. May Jesus continue to bless you with Grace. May the Holy Spirit continue to fill your heart with love. I know that there are bigger and better and greater things to come. #seriouslythebestfatherever
