Speaking to Skyy News’ Nana Yaw Kumi in an exclusive interview, Rev. Dr. Oppong Ankoma urged the President to ignore such calls and concentrate on fighting the pandemic. He is at lost as to why some religious leaders are clamoring for the unlocking of restrictions on schools, mosques and other social gatherings in the country.
“All that the president is doing is to keep his people intact from this ailment. He is not against the church. He is against social gatherings, so we can stop the disease from spreading. Mosques, schools, and others have all been closed. Does the president hate them too? Nobody is even allowed to play football. Why are the churches only complaining, this is not about politics, it is about safety,” he noted.
