It would be recalled that on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, all Christians and Muslims in the country united in prayer against the same COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

This was in line with an instruction that was given by president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for everyone in the religious groups to fast and pray for Ghana so that COVID-19 is nipped in the bud going forward.

The traditionalists in the country were not called upon on that day, but they themselves have gathered forces to also hold prayers against the novel coronavirus.
