Leaders of various Christian groups in the country have sent a joint petition to the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, pleading with him to reconsider the one-hour church service directive.
Speaking to the media, Archbishop Philip Naameh, President of Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference (GCBC) said, “the leaders of the various Christian groups are of the view that the time allocated for church services needs to be reconsidered since religious groups and for that matter, churches have abided by all regulations and safety protocols laid down by the government.”
According to the revered Archbishop, even though they understand that the more time you spend in a gathering, the greater the risk of catching the virus, they are still finding it hard to adhere to the one-hour directive.
“but honestly if we have proved that we can observe all other safety measures, including church fumigation, wearing of masks, hand sanitization and avoiding all manner of physical interactions, I think we can comfortably conduct our services within a little more than an hour. An hour and a half is all we ask for.” He added.
