Former President John Dramini Mahama has advised the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo to distance himself from taking taxes from churches as they are planning to do.
Recently, there has been a debate on various media platforms on if whether churches should be asked to pay taxes to help develop the country as the ruling government has stated that they are putting everything in place to roll out the collection of taxes from churches.
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.
