The church, as a religious organization, has been characterized by broadcaster Nana Aba Anamoah as the country’s biggest hypocrites.
As per her argument, she does not know how the church would ignore the urgent needs of its adherents when supporting the construction of a national cathedral.
In a tweet sent the same week that the Church of Pentecost donated a newly constructed prison and recovery center to the Ghana Prisons Service, Nanna Aba Anamaoh stated that the church would prioritize the needs of its members.
She stressed that she really does not know why the church does not provide beds to hospitals to serve the poor and vulnerable among them, but that she is open to the idea of a national cathedral being built.
“The biggest hypocrites are the religious organisations. Your members can’t afford basic healthcare needs. They’re dying because simple tools are unavailable for doctors/nurses to work with. Heck, they can’t even get a bed in hospitals. But you’re excited about a cathedral,” she said.
However, several people were not pleased with Nana Aba Anamoah’s post and responded in kind.
