Renowned music producer and Gospel singer, Nacee has expressed his displeasure about the proposed ultramodern prison block the Church of Pentecost wants to build for Nsawam Prisoners.
The Church of Pentecost revealed recently that they plan to build the prison as part of their social responsibility to the society.
The facility when completed is expected to accommodate 300 prison inmates and will have a training workshop, an administration block, a church building, and a recreational facility.
But their kind gesture has surprisingly received mixed feelings as people think it’s the core mandate of the government to don’t that.
On that score, Nacee, born Nana Osei has echoed the same sentiment and added that he’ll appreciate it if the church builds factories instead of prisons.
“In my candid opinion, it’s wrong for a church to build a prison in Ghana. Instead, I will rather suggest that the church should build factories and create jobs for its members and other people to get gainful source of employment.
“In addition to the jobs, the church should teach, interlace it with good and practical Christian doctrines to help their members stay away from social vices which may lead them into prison.
“I can tell you that some of the people who end up in prison might be due to joblessness but some of our churches rather invest the monies they get from the contribution of members in ventures that do not inure to the members benefit”.
“It is said that the devil finds work for the idle hands,” he said.
