“Pastors putting pressure on gov’t are behaving like pressure groups”- Methodist cleric

Following calls by pastors and church leaders for government to lift the ban on public and social gathering, Rt. Rev. Stephen Bosomtwi-Ayensu, Superintendent Minister of the Calvary Methodist Church at Amakom in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi has slammed the pastors for mounting pressure on government.

According to Rt. Rev. Stephen Bosomtwi-Ayensu the calls have nt come at a right time as cases of the novel coronavirus continue to rise.

He added president must rather be praised for the leadership he has so far shown in the fight against the disease and pray that God intervenes as soon as possible.

Speaking on kumasi based radio station Angel Fm 96.1, the Methodist Priest said the pastors putting pressure on government are behaving like pressure groups and are doing so because they are losing out on offerings and tithes.

Meanwhile, over the weekend a document signed by the Chirstian Council of Ghana, the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, the Catholic Bishop Conference and the Association of Christian and Charismatic Churches detailing how churches intended to adhere to safety protocols at their premises should the ban be lifted was leaked after it was purported to have been tabled before the president.
