Government urged to close down churches for covid-19 non-adherence

Homedakrom-Otiakrom (E/R) – Government has been urged to close down churches, which are not adhering to the COVID-19 safety protocols.

Apostle Kadmiel E.H. Agbelanyo, the Leader and Founder of the Seventh Day Theocracy Congregation of Homedakrom in the Eastern Region, said most churches were not complying with the directives to provide handwashing stations, enforce the wearing of nosemasks, and use of hand sanitizers, thereby making the covid-19 fight difficult.

Apostle Agbelenyo made the call in an interview with the Ghana News Agency after the celebration of the Church’s Feast of Pentecost at Otiakrom near Aburi in the Akuapem South District.

He said COVID-19 was real and that church leaders must educate their members to take the safety measures seriously to curb its spread and minimise the fatalities.

Apostle Agbelenyo prayed for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, parliamentarians and ministers to be blessed with God’s wisdom to steer the affairs of the nation for peace and prosperity.
