He said he still cannot phantom why Obinim hanged his boot to pick the bible and mount the pulpit.

“I was born at Akwatia Line, the same house as Bishop Daniel Obinim who is a man of God today. He was our next-door neighbour and other guys but he (Obinim) was really a good footballer,” Oduro said in an interview.

“…but I don’t know why he quit football but he was so good at playing, Obinim was a better player than I was so anytime we play I wanted to be part of his team else I won’t play because if I go the opposite side they will score us,” he said.

To prove his claims, a photo of Obinim with his youth team surfaced online. Check it out below.
