Ningo Prampram Member of Parliament, Samuel Nartey George has opposed President Akufo-Addo’s decision to reopen churches and mosques in the wake of an increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the country.

The President in his tenth address to the nation announced the partial lifting of ban on all religious activities in the country with effect from June 5.

According to President Akufo-Addo, churches and mosques can hold services with not more than 100 congregants and for a period not exceeding one hour.

Congregants are expected to wear nose masks and observe a social distancing of at least one meter to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Also, the various churches and mosques must put in place mechanisms to host a database of all persons who will visit the various places of worship to fellowship.

Prior to the President’s decision on Sunday, many in the Christendom had piled persistent pressure on the executive to consider easing restrictions on social gatherings in order for churches and mosques to hold services. It therefore comes to such persons as a huge relief, the easing of these restrictions.

But Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram and an astute member of Agyin-Asare’s Word Miracle Church International, Sam George vehemently opposes the decision taken by the President.

Provide us with PPEs so church services can go on; we miss our members – Sam Korankye Ankrah ‘cries’ out to gov’t 

 

Describing as an unfortunate the decision to ease the restrictions, Sam George said the President succumbed to ‘uneducated’ pressure to reopen churches and mosques.

He further said it will be impossible for a service to be held for an hour and questioned how effective that would be.

In a Facebook post, Sam George said “What kind of meaningful church service can you have with 100 people for a maximum of 1 hour? Mr President, you have unfortunately succumbed to uneducated pressure. Keep the churches and mosques closed.”
