Renowned preacher, Evangelist Stephen Oduro is in full support of churches paying taxes to government.
According to him, government has taken too long in taking monies from the churches for nation building.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Friday, the evangelist bemoaned the extravagant lifestyle of pastors at the expense of poor members.
“Government has even kept long in taking the taxes….People give a lot of money to the churches, and pastors will use the money to travel abroad and be with their girlfriends” he said.
“I fully support this, and government can use the money from the taxes to assist the free education….Government should monitor these churches every single Sunday” he added.
The Evangelist then said that he knows government will use the taxes to Ghana’s benefit so therefore it is a good thing.
