Night club owners in Cape Coast, the Central regional capital of Ghana are blaming churches for the drop in business, The Mirror reports.
Most revelers, they say do not patronize their clubs because of the churches.
According to the report, night club owners made this complaint at a stakeholders meeting at the Elmina Each Hotel with the Ghana Tourist Board.
They claim the churches’ campaigns that paint the clubs as ‘sinful places’ have led to the collapse of most night clubs.
The club owners also blame the churches for organizing all-night prayer sessions on Fridays which have taken people away from the night clubs.
According to the club owners, this trend has affected night life, tourism, economic and employment activities in the city.
They argued further that relaxation is a part of life and called on the churches to allow “the city’s most visible and once vibrant industry to thrive.”
Some church members however told The Mirror that, the churches must rather be praised for saving the country’s youth from “negative behaviour.”
Other church members however, advised the club owners to revive their marketing strategies to win customers for their services, the report said.
