COVID-19: Ogun State Govt Suspends Reopening Of Mosques, Churches Indefinitely
The state government of Ogun has suspended the planned reopening religious centers across the state indefinitely.
The Ogun State Government has announced the indefinite suspension of the planned reopening worship centres in the state.
Governor Dapo Abiodun announced the development on Friday in Abeokuta.
Ogun had planned to reopen Mosques and churches in the state from June 19.
“We are confronted with two choices – yield to the demand of those who want the restrictions to be further relaxed or even completely removed, even if this is at variance with the dictates of incontrovertible data analysis and scientific opinion; or tow the path that preserves public health and safety, even if not so popular.
“As a responsible administration, we choose life and the wellbeing of our citizens and are therefore constrained to take the painful but necessary decision to maintain the current regime of eased lockdown in the meantime.
“We are consequently suspending our initially slated reopening of places of worship,” the state governor said.
