Ghanaians entreated to collaborate to tackle COVID – 19

 

 

 A Clergyman has entreated Ghanaians to abide by the directives put in place by the government to manage and control the spread COVID – 19.

 



Apostle-General Emmanuel Astiko, Founder and Leader and the General Overseer of the Power Mission Church International (PMCI), asked individual citizens not to remain passive but stay safe and take the necessary steps to contain the disease, which he described as “global pandemic”.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) he said ensuring a peaceful atmosphere and non-socialization at this period, was a civic responsibility of every patriotic and nationalistic citizen.

The PMCI has over 30 branches in Ghana and Togo, with the headquarters at Dzodze in the Volta Region.

According to the General Overseer, the PMCI remained committed to partnering with the government in its effort to ensure that every Ghanaian improved upon his or her lifestyle, by staying at home.

He explained that the management, deacons, elders and other officers of the church have been tasked to embark upon outreach visitation programmes to the villages to help educate its members at home to adhere to basic sanitary habits, adding that; “in this way, the church intends to compliment the government’s educational drive of disease”.

Apostle-General Astiko lauded the government’s bold initiative for its pursuit of the national welfare of the citizenry to halt the spread and called on the electronic and the print media to endeavour to educate the public with balanced reportage in their campaign against the pandemic.

He noted that the outbreak of the disease demands national co-operation and noted that, that can only be achieved if Ghanaians unite to fight the pandemic.

“We must resolve to do everything possible and necessary to lend our quota to develop our nation” and that nation-building needed the collective effort of the citizenry, to help achieve the required impact,” he said.

He stressed that without a cure, it would be difficult for the nation to have a decent livelihood to help enhance the peoples living conditions, and advised pastors not only to commit themselves to church activities but also to national development.
