BREAKING: Winners Chapel, RCCG crossover services in serious doubt [Here’s why]


The annual crossover services held by Winners Chapel, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), and other religious organisations across Nigeria is under threat as the Boss Mustapha led Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) on COVID-19 declared that indoor religious gatherings should be limited to 50 per cent, with full compliance to public health measures.

This was contained in a statement signed by Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), which was made available to POLITICS NIGERIA on Thursday.

Due to the number of attendees of such events across the country, the PSC explained that there has been reduced compliance to public health social measures which has led to increased COVID-19 cases in the country.

The committee, however, added that it may be forced to introduce more restrictions should there be an increase in cases.

The statement reads in part: “Indoor religious congregation should be limited to 50% capacity with full compliance to public health social measures; face masks and hand sanitisers should be used at all times regardless of vaccination status while in public spaces.

“Families are advised to limit the number of visitors to their homes and put in place precautionary safety measures. Any gathering in the excess of 50 people should be done in open spaces with physical distancing.”
