Pastor Mensa Otabil has said Presidents of any country will wish they were not President in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
This follows the numerous pressure on the President to lock down the country.
On the back of these and more, Pastor Otabil says it is a difficult time to be a world leader.
In a live Facebook session at his church auditorium in Accra on Thursday, 26 March 2020, the founder and leader of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) said: “I don’t think we should stampede our government into one decision or the other. I’ll choose to believe if anybody is the president at this time, they will probably be carrying the biggest burden in any country.
“This is not a fun time to be president. This is the time, I think, most presidents wish they were not president but citizens because you’re leading your country through the valley of the shadow of death and you’re scared people are going to die on your watch. So, I don’t think we should underestimate the burden on the President and Prime Ministers and leaders of nations, they are going through a very difficult time.”
