According to the Metropolitan Chief Executive of the AMA, Dr Alfred Okoe Vanderpuije, failure to comply with the directive would compel the city authority to deal with such churches according to the law.

He has, therefore, advised them to find alternative places of worship within the metropolis before the end of the stipulated period, adding that, “The assembly will not condone their activities at the end of the period given”.

Dr Vanderpuije was speaking at a sod-cutting ceremony for the construction of a millennium city school at the St Joseph’s Anglican Cluster of Schools at Bubiashie in Accra yesterday.
