The Ondo State Government has reiterated that it will not hesitate to sanction any pastor or church that defiles its directive as regards the ban on crossover service in the state.
The State Inter-Ministerial Committee on COVID-19, while reacting to the directive by the Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in the state, Rev John Oladapo that the body is unaware of the directive, urged residents of the state, particularly Christians to resist any call by anyone, no matter how highly placed, for them to disobey government health order.
On December 23, the state government had canceled Cross Over Vigil across the state over the second wave of COVID-19.
According to the Chairman of the COVID-19 Inter-ministerial Committee, Prof. Adesegun Fatusi, it is misleading for anyone in a position of leadership in the civil society, including religious leaders who are expected to be role models to openly call on citizens to disobey government’s public health orders made to ensure the health of people, with the implication of putting the health of the people at risk.
