The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says his government will not tax churches if elected as president. 

According to him, he would rather give incentives to churches to undertake more developmental projects.

He believes that churches are better positioned to partner with the government in driving development in the country.

“Unless you don’t understand the work the church has done. If you are looking at the buildings, the way they keep the society together, the universities, the hospitals, the schools, it is massive. It is just massive. Many churches have hundreds of schools. So I don’t see and I will not have a situation where we are taxing churches.”

“We will rather want to give churches incentives to support what the government is doing. I want us to be partners in the way that the development partners are with us. You are our domestic development partners and we will give you incentives to do more.” Dr Bawumia told the clergy in his Bold Solution tour in the  Bono East region.
