COVID-19: “Stop acting like pressure groups” – Methodist priest to some pastors

The superintendent Minister of the calvary Methodist church at Amakom in the Kumasi Metropolis, Rt.Rev stephen Bosomtwi – Ayensu has backlashed some men of God who are putting pressure on the government to consider lifting the ban on public gathering despite the continuous rise in cases.

Over the weekend, a document was making rounds on social media. In the document were details of how churches intend to adhere to safety protocols at their premises should the ban be lifted a day before the president’s address on Sunday night.

The document which had been singed by the christian council of Ghana, the Ghana Pentecostal and charismatic council, the catholic Bishop conference and the Association of christian and charismatic churches, was said to have been tabled before the president for consideration.

The Christian Council later came to deny the document. Says it was falsified by some unknown individuals to mount pressure on the government.

The founder and leader of the life Assembly Worship Centre and leader of the Ghana Union Movement(GUM), Rev. Christian K. Andrews popularly known as Osofo Kyiriabosom was also tagged in the incident after he made a statement that God would punish the president if he didn’t allow churches to begin their service.

Rt.Rev. Bosomtwe Ayensu said those pastors are behaving like pressure groups and are doing so because of their stomach, they are losing out on tithes and offering.

He said that the president must rather be praised for the leadership he has shown so far in the fight against the pandemic and pray for intervention from God.
