Even though people have called on Rev Prof Martey to name the alleged bribers, he said he will consistently stick to issues over naming and shaming.
Rev Prof Martey explained that he only addresses issues and not names and he has no intention of changing the trend.
Pressure has been mounting on the outspoken moderator of the PCG especially from the governing National Democratic Congress and some anti-corruption crusaders for him to mention those he alleges came to bribe him.

But addressing a gathering at the Presbyterian College of Education at Abetifi in the eastern Region, Rev Prof Martey said he will consistently stick to issues than naming and shaming.
“They also say those who attempted to bribe professor Martey, if we give the names, we’ll all be happy. But you go back, I’ve been consistent. Never before have I mentioned any name, even those who mention my name and insult me.”
“I don’t discuss personalities, I discuss issues. Issues of corruption, issues of bribery, issues of malfeasance, issues of reckless dissipation of public funds, issues of incompetence. I have never mentioned personalities because I don’t discuss personalities,” he said, according to Kasapa Fm.
The outgoing Moderator accused a political party of attempting to bribe him with $100,000 to silence him.
“Politicians have tried all means to muzzle me, to get me but they can’t, they come with bribes, fat envelopes, $100, 000 … I want everybody to listen that politicians came to my house with $100, 000 and also with the promises that if you keep quiet, we will give you a house at Trasaaco with [a] swimming pool,” Rev Prof Martey said at a news conference on Tuesday.
However, a former Public Relations Officer of the PCG Dr Emmanuel Osei Acheampong subsequently accused the outgoing moderator of the church accepted $100,000 as bribe from the opposition NPP. The church has denied this claim.
