OccupyGhana® has watched with shock, a video on YouTube (now pulled down) of a spiritual match held in Accra from Friday, 30 April 2021, dubbed ‘Pneumatica Night 2021,’ and organised by the Christ Embassy Childhood Church, Airport City, which match packed hundreds of adherents into the air-conditioned tent called Fantasy Dome, with minimal disguise-sporting and absolutely no social distancing.
We are no longer against the maintaining of spiritual events. But we need no reminders that the harmful and murderous COVID-19 is restful fresh and animated with us. As a end result of this the authorities has imposed protocols by regulations, which seek data from compliance, even by church buildings; and our native church buildings be pleased largely been exemplar in this regard. On the opposite, we are seeing the spacious human be troubled that is unfolding in India, triggered largely by unrestrained political activities and spiritual events that did no longer admire COVID-19 protocols.
As a end result of this we are alarmed that the authorities may perchance perchance perchance both actively or negligently enable this match to be held in Accra, particularly by a spiritual organisation whose leader actively denies the virus and preaches against the protocols.
The authorities should always acknowledge to Ghanaians whether or no longer this match used to be held on its blind facet, and if that is the case, how that used to be that you just may perchance perchance perchance think? Became the police fresh on the match, and if that is the case, why? Had been authorities officers invited and were they fresh? Had been the venue house owners fresh, and did they bewitch any steps to conclude or conclude this?
While the authorities compare this topic, we name on the authorities to real away conclude any extra meetings and be conscious the regulations on COVID-19 protocols to the organisers of this match to the fullest extent that you just may perchance perchance perchance think.
The important thing lesson from covid is this: As soon as you occur to pile hundreds of oldsters collectively, maskless, COVID spreads! We all must be pleased learnt that by now! Draw more, reports be pleased confirmed that air-conditioners may perchance perchance perchance unbiased abet spread the virus.
We hope that the authorities be pleased learned the painful lesson on how the ‘kids-glove’ therapy of Aisha Huang all but killed the battle against Galamsey, that the formula the authorities treats this kind of flagrant breach of our legal pointers will show Ghanaians how severe we are about this battle.
Silent within the provider of God and Nation
