Federal Government Calls On Churches and Mosques To Submit Guidelines For Reopening


Director General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu,  has asked professional groups and faith-based organisations, including churches and mosques, to submit guidelines for reopening to the NCDC to review and advise.

He made the request during the daily briefing of the Presidential Taskforce on Covid-19 in Abuja.

Chairman of the taskforce and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha urged Nigerians to be cautious during the celebration of the Eid-el-Fitri in order to avoid the spread of the virus.

He said, “The foregoing admonition becomes critical as we prepare for celebrations at the end of the month of Ramadan.

“It is the prayer of the PTF that we shall all celebrate this Sallah and many more in good health and beseech the Almighty to accept our supplication and look upon our nation and the world, with mercy.
