“...should the need arise, we are preparing to work with government and health organizations to utilize No 1 Oxford Street Hotel and Suites as a centre to house victims and/or medical personnel," he said.

In a related development, the leader of the Titi-Ofei Ministries bowed to pressure from residents of the area where the building is located after he gave up a facility for use amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Some residents of Tema-West on Thursday, April 2, 2020, protested against the decision by the man of God to give out his facility, which is located in a residential area as an isolation center.

The residents expressed concern that the disease being fought is highly contagious and using the facility which is not isolated as an isolation center could expose residents to the dreaded pandemic.
