Popular Ghanaian Bishop, and founder and leader of Perez Chapel International, Charles Agyinasare, says the church will never pay taxes to the government because they have never received any support from the government.
Agyinasare says over the past years, the two major political parties in Ghana, the NDC and the NPP, have never supported the church in any way.
He lamented that the church has rather faced threats of closure and opposition over the issue of tax. This, he said, must not be encouraged in Ghana.
This was gathered by YEN.com.gh in a report sighted on Ghanacelebrities.com.
He was reportedly speaking in one of his sermons in church recently.
According to Agyinasare, the church has created many employment opportunities that some ‘big big’ companies have, stressing that despite this, the church never gets support.
“The church has built schools, hospitals, issued scholarships, and other good and wonderful things. But what do we see? The government threatening the church,” he lamented.
He also cited the United Kingdom, saying that the government supports the church by giving back 25% of the contribution of its members in tax as gift aid.
Given the aforementioned reasons, Bishop Agyinasare maintains that the church will never pay taxes to the government.
Agyinasare was in the news when he celebrated 35 wedding anniversary with his wife Vivian. He wrote a lovely message telling how he will continue to love her till eternity.
