Reverend Professor Dr Paul Frimpong Manso has cleared the air on rumors going round that the clergy wanted the president to lift the ban on the public and social gatherings.

According to him, the clergy never called for the president to lift the ban on social gathering neither did they mount pressure of the president to do that.

This rumor was much circulated before President Akufo-Addo presented his ninth address to the nation on May 10, 2020, on the measures taken to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.

Rev Frimpong Manso stated in an interview with GTV's Abdul Hayi Moomen immediately after the president presented the address.
