COVID-19: Churches not to reopen for this reason – CAN.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has maintained that churches will not open, despite increased pressure from leaders and members.

This was contained in a statement personally signed by CAN President, Rev. Supo Ayokunle, on Friday.

According to Ayokunle, the relaxation of lockdown had seen the country witnessed more coronavirus infection.

โ€œChampions for the reopening of worship centres argue that if people had contracted the virus in the markets and other places, closing the church from worshipping becomes unreasonable!

โ€œIt is like using medicine after death! Furthermore, the church is more organised and a place of healing,โ€ part of the statement read.


Ayokunle, therefore, urged โ€œall churches to remain closed because the daily increasing infected people in Nigeria is dangerous for the survival of us all.โ€

He said that โ€œthe church needs to exercise restrain at this time so that we might not naively and overzealously plunge our members into regrettable destruction and sorrow.โ€
