The Methodist Church of Ghana is seeking an urgent financial bailout from its members across the country to support the church’s university, the Methodist University College (MUC) in Accra.

In that connection, the church has compulsorily levied all its societies to pay between GH¢2,000 and GH¢70,000 or more, depending on the size of the society, to help defray a huge debt sitting on the books of the MUC.

The amount is said to have accumulated huge interest over the years.

According to Daily Graphic the superintendent ministers had been tasked to ensure that their congregations contribute their quota to settle the loan or risk being denied their salaries.

“The sources said the various churches had been given up to the end of the year to ‘cough’ out the levies.”

The newspaper on Tuesday reported that the announcement to that effect, was made on Easter Sunday adding that “the Dansoman Circuit alone, which is made up of about seven different societies, is expected to pay GH¢181,191 by the end of the year. “

“In the Dansoman Circuit, there are seven big societies and six smaller ones, described as nurseries.” Meanwhile, some members of the church have express anger at the directive citing current economic hardship in the country.
