Apostle Eric Nyamekye, the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, has revealed that the church is planning on finishing three more prisons and handing them over to the government by the end of 2021.
He made the discovery in Ejura, Ashanti Region, where he commissioned and handed over to the Ghana Prisons Service an ultramodern prison camp.
According to a post sighted by Arenagh.com on Pulse.com.gh, the prison camps are under construction and have reached very high levels at Nsawam, Obuasi, and Damango.
The decision to create prisons for Ghana was inspired by the church’s 2021 slogan, “Possession the Nations,” according to Apostle Nyamekye.
Meanwhile, the Pentecost Chairman, the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, and the Chief of Ejura, Barima Osei Hwedie II, jointly commissioned the Ejura Prison camp.
An administrative building, a chapel that can also act as classrooms, a football pitch, a baptistry, modern washrooms, a mechanized borehole, offices, an infirmary, labs, and other auxiliary facilities are all part of the camp.
The public has chastised the church for building prisons rather than other “necessary” facilities such as factories to provide jobs for the young.
The chairman, on the other hand, explained his answers to the questions raised to him.
According to him, the church has also started building police stations, mechanized boreholes in rural areas, health clinics, and other projects.
He also described the Environmental Care Campaign to clean Ghana, as well as capacity and livelihood training for its participants, as part of the organization’s vision to change lives and community over the last two years.
