Renowned Gospel singer and sound engineer, Nacee has expressed misgivings about the recent prison block the Church of Pentecost wants to build to ease congestions in the existing ones for Nsawam Prisoners.
The facility when completed is expected to accommodate 300 prison inmates and will have a training workshop, an administration block, a church building, and a recreational facility.
But Nacee, real name Nana Osei thinks the church is rather putting the cart before the horse.
Speaking to Amansan Krakye on Radio Central in Cape Coast, Nacee argued the church should rather build factories and create jobs for the youth and not prisons.
“In my candid opinion, it’s wrong for a church to build a prison in Ghana. Instead, I will rather suggest that the church should build factories and create jobs for its members and other people to get gainful source of employment.
“In addition to the jobs, the church should teach, interlace it with good and practical Christian doctrines to help their members stay away from social vices which may lead them into prison.
“I can tell you that some of the people who end up in prison might be due to joblessness but some of our churches rather invest the monies they get from the contribution of members in ventures that do not inure to the members benefit”.
“It is said that the devil finds work for the idle hands,” he said.
