News Zamfara lifts ban on mosque, church activities

Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara has lifted the ban on congregational prayers in Mosques and Churches placed to curtail the spread of the coronavirus in the state.

Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara has lifted the ban on congregational prayers in Mosques and Churches placed to curtail the spread of the coronavirus in the state.

Matawalle made the announcement in a statewide radio broadcast on Thursday in Gusau.

“I want to commend the people of the state for supporting the government in our effort to frustrate the spread of coronavirus in our dear state by complying with the lockdown orders.

“In the light of this, therefore, we are suspending restrictions on congregational prayers in Mosques and Churches while appealing to people not to converge in large numbers at the same time,” he said.

Matawalle urged the people to continue to observe social distancing when they meet as well as using face masks to prevent the spread of the virus.

The governor, however, said markets in the state would remain closed until further notice, warning that the government would not take it lightly with violators of the orders.

Newsmen report that the COVID–19 pandemics had so far claimed five lives, while 18 victims out of 73 confirmed cases had been discharged from the Gusau isolation center.
