The National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, Barrister Olusegun Bamgbose, Esq., adviced the President Muhammadu Buhari to open up worship centers in the country without further delay.
He noted that religious houses are power houses of the country, adding that continuing lockdown of such places may ruin Nigeria political leaders.
The senior lawyer in a statement on Monday, also suggested to Federal Government to open schools in batches.
According to him, No doubt that the temporary closure of religious activities in Nigeria was due to the ravanging pandemic, coronavirus.
The virus has actually not lessened. People are just dying everyday. The number of infected persons are also increasing. This is no doubt a sad development.
Nevertheless it has become necessary for the Federal government to declare Mosques and Churches open to resume their normal service.
This nation should have stopped to wxist if not for the prayers of Muslims and Christians. The time has come for the power houses to be opened for their normal service.
I believe I've the permission of God to make this statement. This should be done later than June 19, 2020, to avoid an open disaster in high quarters.
Continuing shut down of religious houses may spell doom for our political leaders. One will, however, warn the prosperity preachers to soft pedal on this.
In the same vein, one will urge the Federal Government to open schools in batches.
“The JSS 3, SS3 and final year students in our tertiary institutions should be allowed to resume for obvious reasons.
“They should be allowed to resume and take their exams. The indefinite closure of schools may be counterproductive.”
