Partial Lockdown Is Good But Pastors Must Be Allowed To Go O …
The Leader and Founder of Charity Missionaries Church, Rev Justice Koduah has applauded President Akufo-Addo for his swift restrictions to movement as a way to curtail the Coronavirus in the country.
President Akufo-Addo in a Friday night televised nation address has imposed restrictions on people in some parts of the country.
He said, the measure is to help stop the spread of the plaguing COVID-19 which has so far affected 137 Ghanaians with 4 deaths.
Cities to be affected are Accra, Tema in the Greater Accra region as well as Kumasi and Obuasi in the Ashanti region.
But Rev. Justice Koduah believes that whereas the military, police and other relevant authorities will be given new powers to enforce the measures, Pastors are equally important and must be allowed to go out to homes and preach every Sundays.
” Mr. President, you have done well for this quick lockdown but just as you have allowed a group of persons freedom in this lockdown, please consider Pastors too,” he explained.
He noted that Pastors play very important roles for persons who need quick and spiritual interventions saying allowing Pastors to form home cells will not in any way spread the virus since they will still practice self-hygiene.
The Ghana Health Service as at the evening of 27 March 2020, announced that fifty-nine (59) COVID-19 cases including four (4) deaths have been confirmed from the regular surveillance systems.
All four (4) deaths had underlying chronic medical conditions.
