The National Communications Director for the leading opposition party (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has blasted, think tank political group, Occupy Ghana for calling upon the government to take action against the Christ Embassy Youth Church for organising Pneumatica Night.
The outspoken lawyer in a tweet described such action by the group as hypocritical due to the seeming silence or absence of the group during the election period, where the Covid-19 protocols were put under the rugs by politicians.
These were his exact words in the tweet;
‘Where was Occupy Ghana when Politicians were gathering thousands during the 2020 election campaign, in breach of COVID protocols. When was the last time these hypocrites visited pubs, night clubs and markets in the country? Or is it the case that the church is a soft target.’
Christ Embassy Youth Church led by Pastor Enoch organised a mega alnight program dubbed Pneumatica Night last Friday, 30th May, 2021. An average of over 30, 000 people were estimated to have attended. The event went viral on social media.
There was total disregard to the Covid-19 protocols as Church members danced and sang without the use of nose masks or the practice of social distancing.
The Ghana Police Service in a communique said they were investigating the affair and will arrest all individuals in connection to the deliberate attempt to disregard the Public Preventions Act.
