Kayode Olabanji, Okitipupa
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has, urged Christians to sustain adherence to the COVID-19 guidelines in spite of the reduction in the daily number of cases in the country.
Pastor Peter Akinyelure, CAN Chairman, Okitipupa local government chapter, Ondo State made the appeal while speaking with newsmen in Okitipupa.
He said christians must not take the reduction in the number of cases recorded by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for granted.
According to him, people must continue with the regular washing of hands and the use of alcohol- based hand sanitiser.
Akinyelure said they should continue to maintain physical distancing, avoid hugging, shaking of hands and maintain a clean environment in order to finally curtail the spread of the virus.
The cleric therefore, urged christians to obey all government precautionary measures during their church services saying government was magnanimous to partially open churches.
