Some congregants in a dancing mood

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has commenced the process of collating data of all places of worship within its jurisdiction.

A statement signed by Mr Gilbert Nii Ankrah, Head of Public Affairs for AMA said the data will identify the number of churches and mosques within the metropolis and capture details of the number of members, location, contact persons, among others.

The exercise will enable the Assembly to prepare itself to enforce the guidelines and assist in conducting contact-tracing should there be any confirmed COVID-19 case within any church or place of worship.

The statement said Environmental Health Officers, and Social Welfare Officers and Building Inspectors from the Assembly, would be visiting communities to collect data on all places of worship so as to locate them and reach out.

“The AMA is therefore urging all religious leaders to accord its officers the needed cooperation to ensure a successful exercise,” it added.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
