Archbishop George Slezer Ofori-Atta, of the International Council for Clergy (ICC), has urged President Akufo-Addo to reconsider his decision to ban gatherings in churches and mosques in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, if not doom will befall Ghana.
According to him the government needs religious leaders now more than ever since they are better placed to disseminate information to Ghanaians.
“We have to get a place where we can get church leaders to sensitise their followers and the congregation,” he told Ahotor FM news.
He added that: “The president should lift the ban on churches and mosquesbecause as a nation, it is the best medium where we can get the information across, he should rather sensitize our congregation, get our mindset transformed and get a broadminded approach to this thing.”
Archbishop Ofori-Atta further explains that any country that ignores the worship of God always ends up falling apart and if Ghana followed the same steps will soon be defeated by the deadly pandemic coronavirus.
