Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams, founder of Action Chapel International has called on government to put in place stringent and stiff measures to punish people who secretly record others.
According to him, the act of secretly recording people is evil and dangerous and amounts to setting people up.
“Those of you who record people without letting them know; it’s evil, and I think the government of Ghana must come up with a law that: ‘If record anybody without them knowing, you must be punished because it has become a conspiracy where people just record people without them knowing that they are being recorded”, he said, adding: “It’s dangerous to speak on phone now; very dangerous; yes, you set people up,” he told his congregation while delivering his sermon on Sunday.
Archbishop Duncan Williams is taking a cue from President Akufo-Addo who has banned the use of phones in his office at the Jubilee House.
According to him, the decision to prevent people from sending their phones into President Akufo-Addo’s office followed the interception of a secret recording of the President, ABCNews.com reports.
“I went to the office of the President the other day and they stopped cell phones from everywhere. Why? Somebody had the audacity to enter into the Office of the President to record the President. What is wrong with us? What has become of us now?
“To that extent, you’re not afraid?” he quizzed noting that the act has found its way into matrimonial homes as well, “Husbands are recording their wives when they are making love, and wives are recording their husbands when they are making love; you record the insults but you don’t record the other things; the other things she was saying and doing,” he lamented.
