A pastor of Living Faith Church known as Peter Godwin has disclosed that he and other 39 pastors have been sacked for generating low income for the church.

In a video, Peter Godwin who is a pastor at the church’s branch in Ikere-Ekiti indicated that he was appointed to head the church on 28th August 2020.

According to the man of God, he received a call from the state pastor and was given a sack letter when he went to his office.

He explained that after further enquiries he was informed that he has been dismissed due to low income.

“On the 1st of July, I received a call that the state pastor wants to see me, so I thought I was the only one. I was surprised, so I went to his office. When I got there, I saw other pastors too, over 40 of them, so I joined them.

A few minutes later, we were issued a letter. I opened the content of the letter to see what was there and I saw that it was a sack letter. So I called the management the next day to know what happened since I wasn’t involved in any dubious activity or evil act.

I was told by the management was that the church doesn’t operate at a loss, they also told me the total income that is being generated from my station should be able to cater for my welfare and accommodation, so as a result of low income, I’m hereby dismissed”, Pastor Peter disclosed.

See below a copy of the letter;

He also indicated that they were ordered to vacate their present accommodation immediately without prior notice.

E-Levy Will Be Double Taxation : Kwabena Duffuor

Published

on

The former Minister of Finance, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, has added his voice to the many calls for the rejection of the Electronic Transaction Levy (E-levy) saying it will compound the several taxes on the Ghanaians.

Dr. Duffuor reiterated that implementing the E-levy would affect the ordinary Ghanaian directly since it is the mode of payment widely used.

The former Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG) disclosed that the E-levy move would lead to double taxation as the taxpayer is already taxed on his income.

“This makes the proposed E-levy problematic because it could be fraught with serious implementation challenges. This tax could undermine the Ghanaian Digital Economy.

“It should be noted that taxes/levies are imposed on income, gifts, consumption and held properties or assets. Electronic transfers and payments are none of these,” he stated.

Dr. Duffuor made these statements while delivering a lecture organized by Institute for Fiscal Studies on the theme: The Ghanaian Dream; Transforming the Economy through Job Creation and Opportunities for all’ held at the Tang Palace Hotel in Accra on Monday, 29th November 2022.

The event brought together various personalities in business, politics, agriculture sector, education, traditional rulers among others.

Touching on job creation, Dr. Duffuor pointed out that for a sector to thrive, the government must start matching jobs with skills in a more intentional way.

“We cannot demand of our youth to rise if we do not offer them a platform to step on, a first step into employment and self-sufficiency. This is what the government can and should do,” he added.

We’ll Fix Dumsor In Ashanti Region By Dec. 20 : GRIDCo Assures

Published

on

The power outages in the Ashanti region will continue until December 20, 2021, as a result of ongoing works on three damaged towers of GRIDCo at Bogoso, GRIDCo has said.

Speaking at a joint press conference organized by GRIDCo and ECG in Kumasi, the Director of Northern Network Services at GRIDCo, Ing. Vincent Boachie, said they are currently working on their 330kV Aboadze to Kumasi transmission lines at Bogoso, which were damaged by a communication tower.

Ashanti region since November 9th 2021 has been sleeping in darkness during the peak hours that’s 6 pm to 11 pm each night.

This has been attributed to a broken power plant that carries the load from Aboadze to Kumasi. The development has also affected Water treatment and production from the Barekese site because there’s a shortfall of energy to meet the water production demand for domestic and industrial use.

Addressing the media in Kumasi, Engineer Vincent Boachie said one of the three damaged towers has been fixed, leaving two, which are currently being worked on.

He said currently, most of the electricity supply to Kumasi has been coming from the Akosombo Generation Station and generation enclave in Tema.

He said as a result, during the peak period, the available transmission network cannot carry enough power to the country’s middle and northern parts, including Kumasi.

He said that has caused the current power outages in the region because they are unable to supply the required power to consumers during peak hours.

He indicated that ECG currently cannot come out with a load shedding timetable because they cannot predict the voltage of energy they will have for distribution at the peak period which is between 6 pm – 11 pm.

Engineer Boachie also said plans are underway to relocate the Ameri power plant from Aboadze to Kumasi to provide reliable power to the region.

The Chief Director of the Ministry of Energy, Ing. Lawrence Apaalse, also said plans are underway to ensure that stable power is supplied to the region.

Liverpool’s Mo Salah has been voted the men’s Player of the Year in a poll of 400,000 supporters, after netting 32 goals and counting, in all club competitions this calendar year.

The Egyptian international was named the best performer in 2021 at the Football Supporters’ Association Awards on Monday.

Salah held off competition from Chelsea’s Mason Mount, Man City pair Phil Foden, and Rúben Dias, West Ham United’s Michail Antonio, and Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans to claim the gong.

Last season, Salah, 29, netted 31 times in league and cup matches. He is the fourth Liverpool player to scoop the award in 11 years and the first to win the award on two occasions.

It adds to an extraordinary list of personal achievements, with 50 awards already stuffed into his trophy cabinet and that’s before one adds the player and goal of the month accolades and the Premier League, Champions League, Super Cup, and Club World Cup-winning medals he has claimed with Liverpool.

‘There’s no doubt Mohamed is having another incredible year, the number and quality of his goals have once again lit up English football and contributed to Liverpool’s title push,’ said Kevin Miles, chief executive of the Football Supporters Association.

‘As well as his on-field ability, Mohamed’s character has won support from fans across the game and he was a clear favourite among the voting public.’
