CAN has said the level of coronavirus infection in Nigeria has not gotten to a stage where religious gathering should be banned.
The religious body stated that God has kept coronavirus away from Nigeria because the country cannot contain the pandemic.
CAN advised religious organisations to take action to safeguard members from the infection.
Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, the chairman Lagos CAN, urged the federal government to further secure Nigeria’s borders to prevent the virus from spreading.
He said God has kept it away from Nigeria because the country cannot contain the pandemic.
“Our nation cannot afford to welcome or accommodate coronavirus in our land.
God forbid it in Jesus name,” he said.
“We are watching the situation very closely to know what we must do.
God has kept it away from us because we cannot contain the pandemic here.
“We have not got to that point and we believe we won’t get there.
