COVID-19: Religious And Event Centres Remain Closed – Fayemi Insists

Fayemi briefs newsmen on meeting with Buhari

The Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi has insisted that religious centres and event centres in the state remain banned.

This coming after President Muhammadu Buhari, in a statement released through the chairman of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, approved the reopening of churches and mosques in Nigeria.

The Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General, Olawale Fapohunda, noted that a committee put in place by the state government would work on guidelines for the reopening of religious centres.

The Commissioner for Information and Values Orientation in the state, Muyiwa Olumilua, however, stated that the ban on mosques, churches, and other public places in the state is still effective.

He said, “The attention of the Government of Ekiti State has been drawn to the apparent disregard by some residents for the Executive Order 7 directive, banning public gatherings larger than 20 persons, be it social, political, or religious events in the state.”

“Members of the public are urged to take note that though movement and business activities are allowed from Monday to Friday, the ban on large gatherings is still in force in the state.”

“Dusk to dawn curfew, inter-state travel, and the ban on social events like birthday parties, religious gatherings (in churches and mosques), festivals, political party meetings or rallies, as well as any other gathering of more than 20 persons, have not been lifted in Ekiti State.”

“Residents are also advised to take personal responsibility for their protection while going about their daily duties, by observing preventive measures of washing of hands frequently with soap under running water, wearing face masks, and maintaining social distancing.”

The commissioner noted that defaulters would be prosecuted, as the state government is committed to curtailing the spread of the virus in the state.
