The governor also directed that soaps, water, hand sanitisers must be provided to worshippers as well as use of face masks and maintaining social distance, among others.
A NAN correspondent who visited churches like Christ Apostolic, Anglican, Methodist, Winners Chapel, Mountain of Fire, Redeemed Christian Church of God, among others, in Okitipupa, noted that the churches complied with government directives.
NAN also reports that worshippers wore face masks, while soap, water and hand sanitisers were provided for worshippers before entering the churches.
Worshippers also observed social distancing during the services.
He urged Christians to continue to pray to God to give the leaders the necessary direction and to pray for God to take away COVID-19 permanently.
“We are happy for the partial reopening of worship centres. We thank the state government for the magnanimity and we will continue to pray for our leaders for the right direction.
He, however, urged Christians to continue to comply with all government preventive measures to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
