COVID 19: PTF issues warning to churches


The chairman of the Presidential task force on the COVID 19 and secretary to the government of the Federation Boss Mustapha has warned religious bodies in Nigeria not to disregard the laid down safety protocols of COVID 19.

Mustapha while warning the leaders at an interdenominational service in Abuja on Sunday and monitored by ipledge2nigeria said, it was disturbing the manner in which some churches were disregarding the safety protocols of combating the virus saying it could have severe consequences and overwhelm the country.

“You can see that this virus has confounded and confused the entire world,” Mustapha said.

“It has brought the democracies and economies that existed for the last 300 years to their knees. It has overwhelmed them and what makes you think that it cannot overwhelm us?

“The Church should stop the exhibition of reckless confidence and tell their congregations to do the proper thing which stays safe for themselves, their families and the body of Christ,” he said.
