The founder of Worldwide Miracle Outreach, Lawrence Tetteh has pleaded with President Akufo-Addo to reconsider his decision to ban gatherings in churches and mosques in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Lawrence, this is the time the government needs religious leaders more. The church is the best place to relay information quicker and honestly.
“We have to get a place where we can get church leaders to sensitise their followers and the congregation,” Dr Lawrence Tetteh told Ghanaweb in an interview.
“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.”
Dr. Tetteh also added that, “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,” the man of God added.
