Agyinasare Leads Prayer For Ghana's Ailing Economy
Leading a prayer for Ghana’s ailing economy on Wednesday, 25 January 2023 at the Perez Dome, Archbishop Agyinasare shared his personal testimony as an indicator that the economy isn’t doing too well.
“I have an instrument with a certain financial institution, with a bank, and I’ve done it [for so long] and it’s about GH¢106,000; and I said: ‘I’m taking my money’. They said to me, they are going to pay me GH¢1,000 every week. That means that the GH¢106,000 will take me 106 weeks [to get]. And when I said they should do something about it, they said: ‘It is because it is even you, Archbishop because some people come to our bank and they weep.’”
