President of Imani Africa, Franklin Cudjoe, has expressed his displeasure on why religious meetings have not yet been banned.
Mr. Cudjoe took to his Facebook page to express his disapproval regarding the situation.
He asked all religious leaders to learn how to digitize their work in the era of coronavirus. As the outbreak of the pandemic has caused many sectors have dire consequences, many sectors have changed their plans to suit digitization to stay in business.
In his opinion, members could receive their sermons online by receiving it on social media platforms such as WhatsApp. He also said they could still receive their offertories through the various Mobile Money services where a specific phone number would be provided by the church or Mosque. According to him, this should be done to limit the number of people gathering at places of worship.
“Frankly I expected all religious activities to be banned. Pastors and Imams must learn to digitize their work. Register all members, send them sermons on Whatsapp, and let them momo their offertory,” he wrote.
President Akufo-Addo placed a ban on weddings, funerals, parties, cinemas, pubs, night clubs, among other social gatherings in his address to the nation on Sunday 31 January, 2021.
