Just In: About 3,000 Churches To Be Closed Down In Ghana
Ghana can boast of over ten thousand (10,000) churches across the country and most of these churches are not registered.
About 3,000 Churches face likely closure in the coming months as Registrar General Threatens to strike them off the register of companies.
According to the Registrar General, Mrs. Jemima Mamaa Oware, these Churches have failed to file their annual returns.
She warns: “When we strike you off the register, it will take the discretion of the court to get you back on the register and then after 12 years, the name falls into the public domain and anybody at all can use it.”
“You are supposed to file annual returns after 18 months of incorporation and then yearly thereafter. I have to inform you that most churches are not doing that and I have on my register over 3,000 churches that I am going to strike off the register,” she explained.
