Shehu Sani, former Kaduna State lawmaker has reacted to the reopening of Churches and Mosques by Nigerian government.

Nigerian Government finally lifted the ban on religious gathering across the country on Monday.

Chairman of the Task Force, Boss Mustapha, made the announcement during the briefing of the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19 on Monday, following approval from President Muhammadu Buhari.

The ban on religious gatherings had lasted for two months, a move taken to check the spread of coronavirus.

Churches are to reopen for the next four weeks spanning 2nd – 29th June 2020, and it’s subject to review.

Reacting, Sani described the directives on the reopening of worship centers as ‘vague’

According to him, the only church or mosque the federal government has the authority to open are those within the FCT.

On his Twitter page, Sani wrote: “In this Federalist state, the only Mosque or Church the federal Government has direct authority to open or to close are the ones within the FCT.
