Broadcaster Nana Aba Anamoah has described the church, as a religious organization, as the biggest hypocrites in the country.
According to her explanation, she does not understand how the church will relegate the pressing needs of their members to the background but support the building of a national cathedral.
Sending a tweet that comes in the week where the Chruch of Pentecost donated a newly built prison and rehabilitation centre to the Ghana Prisons Service, Nanna Aba Anamaoh articulated that the needs of the members must be important to the church.
She insisted that she does not understand why the church does not supply beds to hospitals and support the poor and needy amongst them but ready to accept the concept of building a national cathedral.
“The biggest hypocrites are the religious organisations. Your members can’t afford basic healthcare needs. They’re dying because simple tools are unavailable for doctors/nurses to work with. Heck, they can’t even get a bed in hospitals. But you’re excited about a cathedral,” she said.

But many were not happy with this post coming in from Nana Aba Anamoah and reacted in equal measure.
