The founder of the Lighthouse Group of Churches has taken a swing at President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, blaming the government’s attitude for the increase in coronavirus cases.
Bishop Dag Heward-Mills said everything happening in the country with regards to the spread of the vicious disease, was prophesied.
“Everything we have prophesied, the Ghana Charismatic Bishop’s Conference – everything has happened,” he said during a church service streamed on Facebook.
“[When this pandemic began] I said close the border now don’t just close churches, close everything now,” he revealed, but the government left the border open after Ghana had recorded its first two cases.
But the punishments for not listening to “wisdom” are visible for all Ghanaians to see.
“All the cases and death have come from that one week that they left the border open,” the clergyman said.
The government did not pay heed to another advise he offered to address the growing cases of coronavirus.
“Then I said at another meeting that ‘close the border to Accra’ because there is nothing outside Accra,” he said, adding: “and they did not do it and now it is Tamale, Obuasi and it is in Cape Coast.”
A disappointed Bishop Heward-Mills said: “when wisdom is being given you have ignoramuses who speak about things they don’t understand.”
Ghana has recorded a total of 378 cases three weeks after the first two cases were announced. Today, the disease has spread to eight out of the 16 regions in the country.
Four cities in the country are currently undergoing lockdown as part of measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
