The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) said on Wednesday night it is comfortable with any precautionary measure put in place by the government to protect the lives of Nigerians from the scourge of Coronavirus.
The National President of PFN, Rev. Felix Omobude told journalists the decision of Lagos State government to ban all religious gatherings in the state is a welcome development.
Omobude said if the action of the state government is to protect Nigerians from the Coronavirus, it is acceptable to the citizens.
He said: “If this government is taking measures for the benefit of the people, I am for it. The health of Nigerians is paramount to everyone of us and we must endeavor to be supportive of any move in that direction.”
The Lagos State government had on Wednesday banned all religious congregational service involving over 50 worshippers throughout the state.
The state Commissioner for Home Affairs, Prince Anofiu Elegushi, who disclosed this in a communiqué issued at the end of a meeting with religious leaders, said the government took the decision to halt the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
