John Dumelo wonders why Ghanaians prioritize religion over development; tithe over taxes

Actor and politician John Setor Dumelo (also known as John Dumelo) has questioned why Ghanaians spend so much time and effort on religious causes instead of programs that benefit the entire nation.

When asked if there was a connection between religion and development, Mr. Dumelo questioned whether Ghanaians spent more time praying than striving to improve their own lives and the country as a whole.

This website learned about the former parliamentary candidate’s post on his Facebook page on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, in which he questioned whether Ghanaians were responding to the economic crisis in the country in the right way by turning businesses into churches.

Dumelo once more questioned why Ghanaians prioritized tithing over paying taxes to boost the country’s economy.

Perhaps his post has attracted several comments among netizens on Facebook, with some believing his assertions are true and others thinking otherwise.

Here are some of the comments;

“There’s a link between religion and oppression, indoctrination and manipulation,”

@fehintola Solomon Akinola writes,

“African countries, the masses run to Church to get comfort after they’ve been subjected to poverty by the government. I am a Pastor I know how much I spent from my pocket even to encourage people to serve God. No Pastor will force anyone to come to church during the week when you supposed to be working. No Pastor will force money out of your pocket. When there is no job, no good atmosphere, no support from the government. The government supposed to build factories, create jobs for the people. The Churches are only expanding base on God’s word for them to go into the whole world and spread the good news. And they’re prospering because they are brilliant.
