COVID-19: Akeredolu lifts ban of religious centres


The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has lifted the ban on religious activities after consultation with clerics in the state.

Speaking during the state’s weekly media briefing on Wednesday, he said:  “I hereby direct the resumption of guided and syndicated religious activities throughout the state. The implementation of this resumption of activities will be gradual and systematic.

“As agreed with religious leaders, in specific terms, worship centers are to commence their main activities with effect from this Friday.”

Although, he noted that only weekly Friday Jumat services and Sunday Church services will commence in the first instance while others should remain on hold.
