ON TAXATION OF CHURCHES

- Advertisement -

FOR THE RECORDS

We brought civilisation, education, even publication-the first publication started in Ajaokuta by Christian Missionary Society. We brought hospitals. The first leprosy centre was established by Methodist Church,followed by the Catholic Church. The killing of twins was stopped by Mary Slessor of the Presbyterian Church in Calabar.
If we are getting an income from it, you can tax..but tithes and (offerings)..you cannot!

People calling for the taxation of churches are like people calling for the sale of their mother. The christian church is the architect and mother of Nigeria’s achievements….

It (taxing) is an action that is impossible. I am re-emphasising it, it is an impossible task.

States (in Nigeria) cannot generate funds for themselves and they think they can generate funds to run states through taxation of churches. They are deceiving themselves. We will pray and they will collapse because God can fight for himself. Let them diversify!
