Prophet Emmanuel Badu Kobi, Head Pastor and Founder of Glorious Wave Church International have issued another warning to Nana Akufo Addo that it’s nonsensical for the government to think of taxing churches.
In a sermon in his church, he fumed his anger on the Akufo-led government who have made it a priority to tax churches due to the luxurious lifestyles some pastors live.
According to Badu Kobi, taxing the church shows how poor the country is because no nation in the world has imposed taxes on churches.
…And I will say this, any nation that is ready to tax the church is a poor nation because if just for Rolls Royce you are now thinking of attacking the church when they were poor why didn’t you attack the church,” he said.
“…Should we drive a truck? Even the minister of state who is doing nothing is driving Land Cruiser, how much more me; minister of God’s Kingdom?. If you go to a place, you will see a small boy of politicians driving Land Cruisers with bodyguards and they expect a man of God to appear sitting on a truck and call him my Bishop,” he added.
He further added that on their next meeting he will bring NPP’s manifesto and show them where they said taxes must not be part of governance.
“I will show you the page which they said taxes must not be part of the government and taxes is a lazy man’s approach. 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,” he said.
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.
