Lockdown is not a best strategy in fighting covid-19 and I’m totally against it-Bishop Takice Yarboi

President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana maintains the ban on public gathering, including religious activities, festivals and funerals till the end of May.

However, the Presiding Bishop of Victory Bible Church International Bishop Tackie-Yarboi has a different opinion.

"I am advocating for the ban on churches to be lifted because my freedom of worship has been taking away from me. the bishop stated.

"Lockdown is not a best strategy in fighting covid-19 and I’m totally against it ". He added.

According to him, Ghana's constitution gives us the right to worship and nothing must be allowed to hindered it.

" the decision by government to prevent Christians from worshipping in churches is an infringement on their right". He claimed

Again, he insisted that churches are capable of protecting their members if they are allowed to go back to worship.

The bishop made this revelation during an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chat.
