HOT AUDIO:Archbishop Cautions Akuffo Addo-Worst To Come If You Dont Lift Ban On Churches.
Archbishop George Slezer Ofori-Atta, of the International

his decision to ban gatherings in churches and mosques in the wake of
the coronavirus pandemic, if not doom will befall Ghana.

He added that: “The president should lift the ban on churches and mosques because
