The Presiding Bishop of Perez Chapel International, Bishop Charles Agyinasare has slammed the government and Bank of Ghana for not shutting down Ghanaian-owned banks in the country.
In his virtual sermon on Sunday, 19 July 2020, Bishop Agyinasare said he believes the government is envious of businessmen like Kwabena Duffour, Papa Kwesi Ndoum and Prince Kofi Amoabeng so they decide to destroy their businesses.
“I have been asking myself: So, for Dr Kwabena Duffuor, under whose time as Minister of Finance, we had the best economic growth rate of 14 per cent, there was nothing we could do with his bank?” he quizzed.
“What about Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, who introduced or expanded susu banking and had branches than any commercial bank with more customers?
“Then, my own Amoabeng, who helped me grow my money to my first $100,000, which I withdrew and gave out for the building of the Dome, as part of my contribution. Could nothing have been done to salvage some of these great institutions?”
The founder of Perez Chapel said if it wasn’t because of envy, the government would have work toward saving the banks instead of shutting them.
“Can we say all the industries and firms we have closed down in this regime was because all the people and companies were wrong and we could not have done anything to have preserved these great companies? The evil spirit of envy is at work”
