Kwesi Pratt Jnr, the Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper has questioned what informed the president’s directive on private funerals with a maximum of 25 mourners.
“Funerals are being organised in the churches at church services where you have 200, 300, 400 people congregating. So, that restriction of funerals to 25 people, how does it apply when the funerals can be organised at church services in churches which have more than 200 people?” Kwesi Pratt Jnr asked on Saturday when contributing to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the country on the programme “Alhaji and Alhaji” on Pan African TV.
“Does that make sense?” he queried further. “It doesn’t make sense. There is no common sense in that directive.”
Pratt Jnr. opined that all the directives the president gave during his televised national addresses on COVID-19 to Ghanaians on measures his administration has put in place to combat the spread of the novel Coronavirus “do not make sense at all”.
