Just In: Religious Gatherings to Commence Again From June 7 – Akufo-Addo

The ban on religious activities that was imposed on Ghanaians as a result of the coronavirus pandemic has been lifted, effective June 7, 2020.

The lifting of the ban was communicated by the President, Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in his 10th address to the nation on COVID-19 on the evening of May 31.

According to the president, the lifting of ban on religious activities comes with some responsibilities on the part of religious leaders to ensure that the necessary safety protocols are observed.
