Most of your members are poor and jobless so why build a prison? – Nana Yaa Brefo to The Church of Pentecost
Nana Yaa Brefo, a broadcaster, has blasted the Pentecost Church’s hierarchy for erecting a detention camp in Ejura when the rest of its people are living in poverty, starving, and going hungry.
She concluded that before embarking on the prison construction programme, the church should have prioritized the needs of the poor, the elderly, widows, and job seekers.
“Why should you build a prison when the majority of people inside the church are sick, elderly, job seekers, widows, and orphans? Why, why, why? “Do not you realize you and your pastors could be sleeping there?” she closed the door violently.
According to her best experience, the starving masses can be found all over the world. Before going out to collect praise-singing that would impress the press, the church should first repair its people.
As a note, the Church of Pentecost, led by Chairman Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has constructed an ultra-modern jail to assist in the decongestion of prisoners in Ghana’s majority of jails.
The Ejura Prison in Ghana’s Ashanti Region is one of several prisons that the church aims to build around the country.
It is well-furnished, as shown by photos posted on social media, which has a stunning sports center, dining space, and kitchen, among other amenities.
As we previously mentioned, the Church of Pentecost built and donated a prison infrastructure to the Ghana Prisons Service at Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
The fully constructed complex has three dormitory blocks with a combined capacity of 300 inmates.
It consists of an administrative structure, a laboratory chapel, a football pitch, a baptistery, modern washrooms, mechanized boreholes, offices, an infirmary, classrooms, and other auxiliary facilities.
The Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, and the Chairperson of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, as well as the Chief of Ejura, Berima Osei Hwedie II, jointly commissioned the Ejura Camp Prison.
at the brief ceremony The Interior Minister said that the Church of Pentecost has proved to be a first-class private citizen.
