Renowned man of God, Lawrence Tetteh has pleaded with President Akufo-Addo to repeal his ban on churches and mosques.
According to him, the country is in trying times where the influence of churches cannot be downplayed.
He noted in an interview that the church as an institution can play a vital role in disseminating information to the general public.
“We have to get a place where we can get church leaders to sensitise their followers and the congregation,” Dr Lawrence Tetteh told Ghanaweb.
“Instead of closing the churches, mosques for now, which for us as a nation is the best medium where we can get the information across, he should rather sensitise our congregation, get our mindset transformed and get a broadminded approach to this thing.”
This comes on the back of the President placing a ban on social gatherings.
Sunday, 7th March, President Akufo-Addo announced the closure of schools, churches, mosques and other social gatherings till further notice.
There are also restrictions on travel.
Reacting to that, Lawrence Tetteh has said the President should reconsider the ban on churches and Mosque because they are definitely of help in this period.
“Dissemination of information can come from religious leaders better than even the politicians. Because in a situation like this, politicians don’t have control at all.
“People will read meanings into every statement that come from any political leader. Followers of congregations will, however, listen to their leaders,” he said.
