Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has called on the leadership of the Muslim community to use more innovative ways to deliver sermons to their congregants in order to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.
This, he said can be done by using social media such as Facebook.
He noted that although prayer is key in the Islamic religion, it must be done in a manner that will prevent the spread of the disease.
Dr Bawumia made the call when he met the leadership of the Muslim community at the Jubilee House in Accra on Friday.
The leaders prayed for the country amid the coronavirus pandemic that is threatening to bring the country to a standstill.
The Vice President said the government has taken swift measures including the suspension of religious gatherings in order to preserve the lives of the citizens.
“The decision to suspend services in churches and mosques was drastic, but a necessary measure to safeguard our health so that we can get back stronger and worship our Lord inch Allah”, he said.
He therefore encouraged all and sundry to follow the directives of President Akufo-Addo.
