- Thousands of congregants massed up with no masks at the Fantasy Dome
- The congregants, numbering in their thousands, partook of the "Pneumatica Night 2021"
- Organizers of the event – Christ Embassy – have made the Youtube video “private”
Photos and videos of a crowded church service in an enclosed space at the Fantasy Dome in Accra has surfaced online.
The church service, organized by Christ Embassy, was dubbed "Pneumatica Night 2021" and had congregants numbering in their thousands – with no facemasks or social distancing – singing and dancing in energetic praise.
Organizers of the church event have so far made the YouTube Video to the service “private” as many criticize the church for clear violations of Covid-19 protocols.
Founder of the church, Pastor Chris Oyakilome, is notoriously popular for his controversial stance on Covid-19 protocols and the vaccines. The pastor has launched campaigns against vaccine programs saying it is a conspiracy to wipe out the African race – an allegation the World Health Organisation (WHO) has condemned.
Archbishop Duncan Williams has chided a cross section of the public including pastors for churning conspiracy theories over the Covid-19 vaccine.
Duncan Williams in his sermon on a Sunday revealed he had taken his vaccine and that it demands faith to take the Covid-19 vaccine.
Even though he was not specific whom he was targeting in his sermon, excerpts of the chiding can be targeted at Pastor Chris who earlier held a sermon churning what he believed to be evil intentions behind the Coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent vaccine.
According to Pastor Chris, the vaccine is meant to wipe out the human race. But this, Duncan Williams fiercely rejects.
“People are saying all kinds of conspiracy theories against the vaccine? If you don’t have what to preach stop preaching and making a whole sermon out of vaccines. We all take vaccines – from polio to measles – what is different about this vaccine that has got many talking.”
Government begun mass vaccination of the COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, across selected places in the country.
In President Akufo-Addo's 24th COVID-19 address to the nation, he mentioned that the vaccines were going to be administered in some 43 districts which according to him have been earmarked as Epicenters.
Prior to that, the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and his wife, Rebecca Akufo-Addo were the first to take the jab at the 37 military hospital.
The Programme Manager on Immunization at the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Kwame Amponsa-Achiano, has noted that a total of 30,500 Ghanaians have received the COVID-19 vaccine as of March 3, 2021.
He noted that out of the 30,500, about 16,990 of them are males while 13,450 are females.
