Pastors in Ghana are coming up in arms after President Nana Akufo-Addo recently floated an idea of possibly looking into taxing churches.
These self proclaimed ‘men of God’, who are living lavish lifestyles on the back of their congregation’s money, are balking about having to pay their fair share of taxes because their greedy selves need more money to chop.
Prophet Emmanuel Badu Kobi, founder and leader of the Glorious Wave Church International, has angrily attacked the government over the proposed idea to tax churches.
According to him, it’s a nonsensical idea to think of taxing churches.
In a long tirade, Badu Kobi exploded: “Sunday, I ‘m coming with NPP manifesto and I will show you the page which they said taxes must not be part of governance and taxes is a lazy man’s approach.” he said.
“The things I will prove to them and eventually will speak throughout the whole of Ghana. They should come and tell us where this nonsense entered their head.
“If they want to tax the church, we must tax their campaign money and if they don’t want pastors to drive the best, they should go to campaign on trucks. Nonsense.”
He added: “How can you be happy and say you want to tax the church, are you a fool?”
