The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo has assured Christian Leaders of efforts at working on modalities to lift ban on public gathering which is gravely affecting churches and social life.
The President during his first update on measures taken to fight COVID-19 placed a ban on public gathering including parties, festivals, Church services, Muslim services, weddings and clubbing.
This was to help ensure that the various social distancing protocols are adhered to by all Ghanaians.
At a meeting to update Christian leaders, the President said he’s aware how the ban is affecting the Church but was quick to add that he will meet with the leadership to discuss the modalities for the ban to be lifted.
He said “You are major actors in the struggle, the banning of public gatherings that affects the Churches affects each one of you. I felt that with all of this as the background, with the role that you have already played, and continue to play, it would be a good moment for us to meet again and exchange views as to the way forward for our country”.
On their part, the leadership of the Clergy pledged their unwavering support for government as it takes continued steps to stop the spread of the novel Coronavirus, Covid-19 within the Ghanaian territory.
“We are behind what the government is doing and we will do it such that at the end of the day, we will all rejoice for it that we stood together, we were in it together, and we have battled to win together and that the Church can join in the celebration after it all” Rt. Rev. Kwabena Boafo said.”
