How Can We Pay Offetory In Church?: Ghanaians React To BoG's Decision To Phase Out Ghc1 and GHc2

The decision of Bank of Ghana to phase out the GHc1 and GHc2 notes very soon, many people have expressed their concerns and worries. This was made known to Ghanaians by the governor of the Central Bank who is in the person of Dr. Ernest Addison when he was speaking on Monday, September 27, 2021.

The reason behind such a decision he made known as well. He said that, the GHc1 and GHc2 are ones that go out very widely and in turn come out very soiled and torn as well. The effect, he said was that they make it difficult for the currency processing machines to process them. He added that hence these two notes would be replaced with coins, that is, GHc1 coins and GHc2 coins.

This decision seems not have gone down well with many Ghanaians. As a result of that,Ghanaians especially those active on social media platforms have reacted. In a post shared by TV3's Instagram page, netizens were asked to share their thoughts and they did not disappoint. Netizens have really expressed themselves.

Most of them are talking about how church offertories could be paid without these Ghc1 and GHc2 notes. Not everyone can afford an offering of Gh5 or above so the Ghc1 and GHc2 really save a lot of people.

A user by name blaq_ice_ commented by saying "offetory time go turn war zone give some of us o". serwaa.xx_ also said "b3si den yato collection". The comments go on and on.

According to one alby90327, the coins rather get lost easily hence they are supposed to be phased out not the papers or notes.
