Breach In COVID-19 Protocols: Pastor Warns Government to Release Jailed Pastors After Failing To Arrest It’s Own Party Executives



An angry pastor has vented his anger on the New Patriotic Party and government, calling on the president to release some pastors who were jailed for breaching some preventive measures imposed by the President during the lockdown.

Prophet Alex Amstrong, founder of the Potters’ Family Chapel said, if the NPP could not adhere to the safety and preventive measures in combating the covid19 during its parliamentary elections without being arrested, then pastors jailed by the same government should be released with immediate effect.

Speaking to a group of congregants, pastor Alex had this to say,

“Some pastors have been disgraced and insulted because we all stood and prayed for you before you became president. I prayed everywhere I went and prayed for you because God spoke to me that you will become president, you didn’t pay me and I don’t need anything from him or any MP,”.

As part of easing the restrictions on the social gathering, the government outlined some protocols which various churches in the country are to follow. Congregants should not be more than 100 in a place of worship be it a mosque, church, or any other place of worship.

Leaders of the various churches are to ensure that members adhere to these safety precautionary measures especially the wearing of masks, regular hand washing and social distancing.

Pastor Alex feels the government is not being fair with pastors as he has allowed other people from the NPP to go unpunished for breaking the same laws which some pastors have been jailed for breaking.

This was what he had to say, “Look at what happened yesterday, it is sad…how they were hugging, dancing, jumping and running [around]. That one nobody has arrested them,”

He further went on to threaten that jailed pastors should be  “released immediately other than that it will be a curse on all the politicians…other than that, judgement will come from above.”



796 Prisoners Granted Amnesty By President Akufo-Addo



In relation to the 1992 constitution in accordance with Article 72(1), it states that the President shall have the power to reprieve, grant pardons, respites or remissions of punishment tor to suspend, remit or commute the sentence of any person convicted of an offense.

Per the aforementioned, President Akufo-Addo has therefore granted amnesty to 794 prisoners in a way to decongest the prisons as part of measures to control the corona virus infections in the prisons as the safety in the conditions of the prisons were questionable.

772 convicts were first offenders, 2 of them sentenced to death had their sentences reversed to life imprisonment, 16 were very old prisoners and 4 critically ill prisoners.

Below is the statement to that effect:

I Am Not In ICU- Carlos Ahenkorah Releases Statement To False Claims



There had been news making rounds that the Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry and the Member of Parliament for Tema West Constituency, Hon. Carlos Ahenkorah had contracted coronavirus and currently receiving treatment at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.

However, the lawmaker had debunked the rumors saying he was admitted for an overnight check in relation to his COVID-19 status and there was not more to that.

Carlos was said to have been admitted at the ICU with NPP’s Mark Manu immediately after the demise of Sir John.

Mark Manu is yet to respond to the claims.

Below was the statement released to that effect:

I am not in ICU – Carlos Ahenkorah

My attention has been drawn to messages circulating on social media to the effect that I am in ICU after testing positive to COVID-19 sending worrying signals and misinformation to my well-wishers and party faithful.

I must categorically state that I am not in ICU neither am I in Korle-Bu at the moment. I was admitted for an overnight review on my COVID status at the ISOLATION CENTER in Korle-Bu yesterday around 5 pm and discharged at 11 am this morning.

I have not in any way been taking ill or suffer any serious break down to send me into ICU.

I ask all and sundry to disregard this hollow speculation and confirm I’m as fit as I use to be.

Thank you!
