The Chief of Wiamoase in the Sekyere South District of the Ashanti Region, Nana Boakye Yiadom has sparked controversy on social media after branding nurses in general the most wicked professionals.
What made his comment even more interesting is when he added that during the time of Jesus Christ, some nurses who were supposed to attend to Mary, the mother of Jesus, were reluctant, claiming there were no beds her to lie on and give birth.
“They even did it to Jesus; when Mary was in labour, it was nurses who told her that there was no bed for her to lie on”, he told a congregation on Sunday.
Nana Boakye Yiadom was speaking as the Special Guest of Honour at the 2019 Sekyere Presbytery Youth Convention of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana when he made the remarks.
He was addressing a gathering of more than six hundred members of the Young People’s Guild (YPG) of the Presbyterian Church, drawn from all the fifteen districts under the Sekyere Presbytery, who were being hosted by the Riis Congregation at Wiamoase.
“I want to put you to a small test to ascertain the most wicked professionals in Ghana”, he told the congregation; “which people told Mary there was no bed when she was in labour”, the chief quizzed.
“My wife was once in labour and when I took her to the hospital, and the nurses said there was no bed; I became very sad, but was not surprised because they even did same to Jesus Christ”, he recounted.
“So who are the most wicked professionals on earth”, he queried as the congregation responded with a chorus, “nurse”.
