The Ghana Police Service has confirmed that the ban on alarmist New Year’s predictions remains in effect.
In a statement issued yesterday, Ghana police spokesperson Grace Ansah-Akrofi stated that those found guilty will face punishment.
Remember that the Police Department banned what it called “misleading” new year prophecies in churches, claiming that they can cause panic and endanger lives.
According to Ansah-Akrofi, many churches gather on New Year’s Eve to hear their religious leaders make prophetic proclamations for the coming year.
“A year ago today, December 27, 2021, the Ghana police service drew the attention of the general public, particularly members of the religious community, to the law regarding the communication of prophecies, and urged compliance to ensure continuous security and law and order in the country,” said Ghana police spokesperson Grace Ansah-Akrofi in a statement Tuesday.
“We wish to commend the public, particularly religious groups, for their cooperation over the period by being circumspect and conscious of the law and adopting legally acceptable means of communicating prophecies to those affected.
“Ghana is indeed grateful to the religious leaders in particular and the religious community as a whole for their patriotic understanding of the situation.
“As the year 2022 draws to a close, we wish to once again entreat the general public, especially faith-based groups, to ensure continuous compliance with the law as it relates to the communication of prophecies.
“Let us remember that, while we have the right to practice our faith in religion, freedom of worship, and free expression, thiys right must not be exercised at the expense of the rights of others or the public interest.”
