The outgoing Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey has said the Presby church does not support the New Patriotic Party (NPP) or any political party.

According to him, “The Presby Church of Ghana doesn’t belong to any party and does not support any party. It has been in existence before all the political parties came,” the religious leader said at a press conference.

“We have seen government upon government. We partnered JJ Rawlings, John Kufuor and Atta Mills in the fourth republic and today we’re partnering John Mahama. So we will partner any government that comes.”

Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey also revealed he was approached with a whopping $100,000 by politicians to woo him. He added that the desperate politicians upped their bid with a house that has a swimming pool at the plush Trasacco Valley and a 4X4 vehicle.

Though he would not mention persons who tried to court his support or the party the agents were working for, he noted that the unnamed party had wanted to silence him with the bribe.

“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 Trasacco with swimming pool."
