Ghana’s economic crisis: Churches should improve social support systems – Dr Stephen Takyi appeals

Policy and planning lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Dr Stephen Takyi, has suggested to churches to improve on their social support systems for the members.

 

In the midst of economic challenges confronting the country, he suggested among other things to the managements of the churches to reconsider multiple offerings during services.

Dr Takyi on tariff increments
Dr Stephen Takyi suggestion came following the Public Utilities and Regulatory Authority (PURC) announcement in water and electricity tariffs increment.

 

Effective September 1, 2022, water and electricity tariffs have been increased by 21.55% and 27.15% respectively.

 

On a panel discussion on Otec FM’s morning show “Nyansapo” on Monday, August 16, 2022, he noted that the tariffs increment will be an extra burden to the people and his suggestion will give respite to the congregants’ financial burdens

 

“The increment in utilities tariffs will compound the already sufferings of the members so the churches must reconsider not go beyond one offering during church services to ease their burdens,” he told the Nyansapo host, Captain Koda.
