Gov Wike Reverses Self, Cancels Concession To Churches On Lockdown

Governor Nyeson Wike of River State

The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has reversed himself and cancelled the earlier concession his government granted churches to hold Easter Church Services with their full congregations.

A statement today, April 11, by the state commissioner of Information and Communication, Paulinus Nsirim, said that the decision was taken after due consultations  with eminent clergy men, well-meaning Nigerians and  civil society groups.

“For the avoidance of doubt, churches should stick to the 50 persons per service to maintain social distancing.”
