New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin South, Mr John Ntim Fordjour seems not to agree with those who are calling for regulation of churches in the country.
To him, the Akufo-Addo government has no intention to pass such a law, citing other priority and focused areas of the NPP as reasons.
“I disagree with the consent of some MPs. Christianity is not the only religion in Ghana and so I strongly disagree with their views. What I know as an MP is that this government will never regulate churches,” he said.
Mr Fordjour was speaking on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem, Tuesday.
Some MPs are requesting for a law to be enacted to regulate activities of churches solely owned and run by individuals and self-professed pastors termed as ‘one-man churches’ who are engaging in all sorts of illegalities.
But, the Assin South MP vowed to personally resist any attempt to have such a legislation passed insisting that the Nana Akufo-Addo government will in no way superintend over such a move.
According to him, “we will not go anywhere in this country if we call stakeholders to ensure the enforcement of these laws, the proposed move will amount to pure discrimination against religion.”
