Even the Federal government has lifted some restrictions imposed on its citizens on Monday 1/06/2020. The Buhari’s led government on Tuesday June 2, made a clearer view on easing the ban on religious gathering which was earlier announced to operate.
According to the national coordinator of the presidential task force on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu who revealed at the daily briefing today, stated it is safer for people to worship at home in spite of relaxation of the ban on religious gathering.
Aliyu stated that Coronavirus pandemic has the tendency to easily spread in religious centers due to the nature of worship across the country.
“The federal government decided to reopen worship centers under specific guidelines but if you can worship at home, please do so because it is safer to worship at home. It is better to stay at home and worship than to go to a place of worship.
“Places of worship that do not comply with required measures should not be allowed to operate. State authorities should not allow such churches or mosques to operate.”
