The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has expressed confidence that the ban on religious gatherings in the country could end by the first Sunday of June.
CAN President Rev Samson Ayokunle gave the indication in a statement on Wednesday.
Rev Ayokunle noted that they have been in talks with the federal government over the modalities to follow.
Ayokunle said if the government can open banks and markets, they should not have any fear in reopening religious centres, as they are more organized than markets and banks.
Ayokunle said the CAN and her members are law abiding citizens and they will be well organized and well prepared to curtail tbe spread in various churches.
We are hopeful that latest by the first Sunday in June, all our churches would open again for congregational worship under COVID-19 prevention regulations. As I said before, we are consulting with the government on this.”
Rev Ayokunle said churches have been abiding by all Government directives in conducting burial and marriages since the pandemic.
He prayed that God in his infinite mercy should put an end to the novel Coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 150 People in Nigeria.
