A ban on public gathering including church activities has been imposed in the country following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

Most churches have resorted to virtual services to keep in touch in its members.

Meanwhile, a few of the pastors who have been flouting the ban have been arrested and granted bail.

Speaking to this in an interaction with Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM morning show 'Kokrokoo', Education Minister, Matthew Opoku Prempeh also known as Napo, wondered why some of the pastors insist on meeting the church members at church.

'God is Omnipresent' he said.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on March 15, 2020, issued a directive that all outdoor events, including funerals, church activities and naming ceremonies, be suspended.

Earlier, Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah cautioned the general public to observe the directives given by government – failure to do so would leave officials with no option than to involve security agencies.
