Reopening of churches by Akufo-Addo is a recipe for disaster – Patience Nyarko

‘Wafom Kwan’ hitmaker, Patience Nyarko has expressed her profound gratitude to the President for reopening of churches in Ghana but welcomes the decision with mixed feelings.

The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Sunday announced that churches should be reopened for a hundred (100) worshipers in attendance and a maximum of one hour church service at a time. 

Patience Nyarko in a recent exclusive interview with Amansan Krakye on GBC Radio Central in Cape Coast monitored by, was asked what she made of the closure of churches by the President.

She replied “When the President initially put restrictions on the opening of churches, I was highly in support of that decision.

“Because if you look at how our fathers who are Pastors and the way they work, they can be on their feet to do deliverance and anoint a lot of people. 

“The love for mankind makes them do these things without getting tired. So I was a bit afraid that if the President didn’t put restrictions on the opening of churches it would cause more harm.

“The way we become happy when we go to church and sing we are together again then we shake ourselves and hug ourselves it will surely cause problems.

“I know that the President has been contemplating as to when to reopen the churches for sometime now. The closure of churches was in our own interest but if the church was closed down, it didn’t mean that you’re prohibited from praying as well.

“When the time comes for churches to be reopened we will all go back to church with happiness”.
