The Inspector General of Ghana Police, James Oppong-Boanuh, has advised prison inmates to watch Emmanuel TV, the television station of Prophet T.B. Joshua, in order to be ‘reformed’.
According to a report by The Ghanaian Times, Oppong-Boanuh made this assertion while presenting food items, a flat screen television and a decoder to inmates of the Sekondi Prisons in the Western Region of Ghana.
Presenting the items on behalf of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), the Western Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Redeemer Vincent Dedjoe, entreated the prison officers to encourage the inmates to particularly watch the activities of Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV.
He said watching the channel will enable the inmates to listen to the word of God that could reform them by the time they are released.
“This will help the inmates to listen to the Word of God, be informed and well reformed when they are released from prisons”, he stated, emphasising the gifts were “a measure of extending God’s love and care to them”.
Receiving the items, the Assistant Director of Prisons (ADP), Nana Amoku Quansah, expressed gratitude to the IGP, who was newly confirmed as Ghana’s top police officer by President Akufo-Addo, for the gesture.
Emmanuel TV is arguably the world’s most watched Christian ministry. Videos posted on its official YouTube channel have attracted more than half a billion views.
