background fetch not working with accelerometer in react native expo

im using below code to fetch the accelerometer values when my app is running in the background i have added the below code ouside of the app component

TaskManager.defineTask('firstTask', async ({ data, error }) => {
  if (error) {
    // Error occurred - check `error.message` for more details.
  if (data) {
    Accelerometer.addListener(accelerometerData => {

the below code is inside of the app component

useEffect(() => {
   }, []);

  const RegisterBackgroundTask = async () => {
    try {
      await BackgroundFetch.registerTaskAsync('firstTask', {
        minimumInterval: 5, // seconds,

      console.log("Task registered")
    } catch (err) {
      console.log("Task Register failed:", err)

when i console log something the background app works meaning when i close my app the console.log will display on the console but when i add the acceleromenter nothing happens

Any idea on what i should do
