The immediate past Chairman of the church of Pentecost and the immediate past President Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, Rev. Professor Opoku Onyinah, says Ghana is in a crisis period and churches are obliged to obey the directives of their leaders.
He believes the government is the father of the nation and all leaders can group to engage the Presidency for clarification if they disagree with the ban.
Rev. Professor Onyinah said the directive is not to ban church activities but to regulate it.
He said sometimes, the creator allows catastrophe to occur to compel man to recognise him.
On the ban on burials, he said the government did well by recommending private burial for people who have lost their loved ones.
Government banned all public gatherings including conferences, workshops, funerals, festivals, political rallies, church activities and other related events as part of measures to stop the spread of coronavirus in Ghana.
President Nana Akufo-Addo in a national address on Sunday [March 15, 2020] said the ban will be in force for the next four weeks.
