In reaction to this, Former President Mahama advised the government to stay away from issues that bother with the church because the Christian Council has been tasked to deal with churches that go contrary to some directives and they are the group mandated to deal with church issues.

He further went on to state that instead of the government planning to take taxes from the church, they should rather offer help to the Christian Council that can help them regulate the churches because taxing them won’t help solve the problem.
