At an Economic Summit organised by the Ministry of Information in Kumasi, the founder of the New Life Church, London, who is also the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Reshview International, London, Rev. Mark Adu-Gyamfi suggested that religious bodies in the country, which are doing business in addition to their religious work, to pay tax.

Rev. Adu-Gyamfi noted that tax was the only avenue that enabled governments all over the world to realise revenues for development. He stressed that it would be prudent for many of such churches in the country to pay taxes on the enterprises established in addition to their church activities. He said in Ghana, the orthodox churches and some other pentecostal churches were putting up schools and universities in the name of God and that was also their contribution to the country’s development efforts.

Rev. Adu-Gyamfi observed that there were some churches in the country whose leaders were making capital out of the ignorance of their members and were exploiting them by taking huge sums of money from them to lead luxurious and ostentatious lives.
