FG Is Afraid Of Pastors And Imams, This Is Why They Haven't Shut Down All Worship Centres - Tomori

According to PUNCH, a Professor of Virology, Oyewale Tomori, says the government has not been able to shut down worship centres amid the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic because the government is afraid of pastors, imams (religious leaders) in Nigeria.

Tomori, who is the Chairman, Expert Review Committee on COVID-19, advised religious leaders to obey government directives aimed at guaranteeing public health safety.

He stated this on Wednesday while speaking on a PUNCH Online interview programme, The Roundtable.

Tomori said;


Recall that on Monday, the Federal Government ordered all civil workers to stay at home for five weeks due to the increasing number of Covid-19 infections in the country, as they also gave some restrictions on religious worships to avoid the further spread of the virus. The Federal government also asked religious centres to restore the rules and regulations for controlling covid-19 which includes;

Maintaining social distance in the worship Centres, Washing of hands before entering, Sanitization of the surroundings and the people before entering into the worship place and also the use of face mask.
