In a press release signed by their Chairman, Eric Nyamekye, the church directed all ministers, officers and church members to be cautious by following all precautionary measures spelt out by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the Health Ministry to help fight the pandemic.
“While admonishing and based on the statement made by the president, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his address to the nation on Friday, March 6 and Wednesday, March 11, 2020, that the fight against coronavirus which has been declared a global pandemic cannot be that of government alone, coupled with the two confirmed cases in Ghana which include a Ghanaian, we want you to understand and accept that the coronavirus does not affect only whites”.
