Stressing that God was aware of COVID-19, Okere stated that the virus brought people closer to God.

According to the clergyman: “The pandemic is a blessing in disguise for the church in particular because it provided the environment for the domestic church, where families prayed together and thrive.

“God is aware COVID-19 will come the time it came, nothing happens to God by surprise.
