Dr. Nana Obiri Yeboah who is a Ghanaian sociologist has thrown shades at the leader of Action Chapel Archbishop Duncan Williams to convert his church into a factory to help boost the economy.
His comments come after the Man of God declared a 72-hours fasting and Prayers to help boost Ghana’s economy last Sunday during his sermon in church.
He said; “A powerful prayer is needed for a nation which is in crisis. Ghana needs divine intervention to overturn the suffering, hardship and difficulties and crisis we face as a nation and a people”.
According to Dr. Nana Obiri Yeboah fasting and prayer cannot save Ghana’s economy challenged and therefore challenged the General Overseer of the Action Chapel International to convert his church into a factory if he indeed wants to save Ghana’s economy.
In an interview with Starr FM, the sociologist stated that Ghana’s economic problems have nothing to do with spirituality and that Ghanaians should move from religion and superstition when dealing with national issues.
He said; “Our problem…economic hardship is not spiritual. It’s attitude and the structure of our economy. After independence, we have not been able to turn the tables around and fight for that economic independence. We have rather dwelt on superstition and more of religious industry, everywhere. That’s why we have a lot of religious bodies and that has affected the psyche of so many people thinking that it’s bad divine assault on us.
The problem of the cedi is based on economic principles, the forces of demand and supply. What are we supplying?”
Dr Nana Obiri Yeboah challenged Archbishop Duncan Williams saying;
“If that building [the church] at the industrial area is a processing plant, you think it cannot stabilize the dollar, if all those buildings those pastors are putting up, meeting there and telling the people a lot of stories about Jesus Christ and all those things. Look at our industrial area, taken over by churches and we don’t export anything”.
