Chairman of the Christian Council of Ghana, Most Rev. Paul Kwabena Boafo has registered his displeasure at the numerous calls on President Akufo-Addo to lift the ban on church activities instituted in a bid to contain the spread of the Coronavirus.

The Bishop of the Methodist Church, Ghana cannot fathom why a section of Christian religious leaders are piling pressure on the government to ease the restrictions on churches at a time that the Coronavirus infections in the country are increasing on a daily basis.

Given this, the Clergyman averred that the activities carried out in church such as singing and dancing are very conducive for the spread of the virus hence maintained that opening churches now will be a disaster for the country as far as the Coronavirus pandemic is concerned.

It’s time for President Akufo-Addo to consider reopening churches, mosques – Edudzi Tamakloe

Quoting the scriptures in Romans chapter 13 to make his case in an interview with Accra-based Neat FM on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, Most Rev. Paul Kwabena Boafo admonished Christians in the country to obey the leadership of the nation and comply with the directives implemented in an attempt to protect everybody.

“If the churches are opened and we go and contract the disease, what next? These are the questions we should be asking ourselves,” the Chairman of the Christian Council of Ghana pleaded.

He further explained that “opening churches for us to go and engage in singing and dancing which at the end will result in the spread of the virus will be an exercise in futility. So we must be obedient to the President as recorded in Romans 13 that leadership should be respected.”
