The airtight logic of the Ghanaian leader.
Despite a ban on public gatherings of more than 25 people, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is currently holding a national prayer breakfast with definitely more than 25 people in attendance.
The purpose is ostensibly to pray against the spread of coronavirus whilst simultaneously putting everyone at the program at risk of contracting the coronavirus.
The breakfast has in attendance numerous top pastors from all sorts of churches across the country.
At the moment, the government seems to be taking half measures instead of fully clamping down on public events.
They closed schools, but then said final year students should still go to school; they closed churches but left nightclubs. The purpose of a quarantine is to keep everyone isolated otherwise it doesn’t work.
We’ll all be better served if he goes back to sit down with his advisors to brainstorm concrete measures to address this looming pandemic – prayer has not saved any nation so far from the pandemic and will not save us.
