Bawumia never said he was going to pay churches, says Miracles Aboagye

The clarification is in reference to reports suggesting the NPP presidential candidate promised to pay churches if elected president in the December elections

The communications director for the Bawumia Campaign Team, Dennis Miracles Aboagye has refuted reports that the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has promised to pay churches if elected president in the 7 December election

Speaking on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Tuesday (14 May), Aboagye said Bawumia was taken out of context.

He was taken out of context and if you recall his policy position was purely on whether churches should pay taxes or not and then that conversation was lost out with misleading headlines like ‘Dr Bawumia says he will pay churches’. So he needed to provide that clarity.”

“He never said he was going to pay churches … What he was saying is to highlight the churches’ contribution to our development and he indicated that if anything at all, it shouldn’t be taxes of churches that we should be discussing.”

“We should rather be thinking of how we are going to pay them for all their services and investments to the nation. But he never said categorically that he was going to pay churches,” Aboagye said.
