Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has said that there will no longer be Easter church services this weekend.
Gov. Akeredolu announced this decision after meeting with the state’s chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
“I’ve heard you all and your concerns on the need to #LockDownOndo.
“I have just concluded a meeting with CAN and we have resolved that the services will not hold again.
“Thanks for your concerns. Stay blessed and Happy Easter to all,” Gov. Akeredolu tweeted from his official handle on Saturday.
Gov. Akeredolu had earlier temporarily lifted the ban on religious gathering in the state, in order for Christians faithful to converge on churches on Sunday for the Easter celebration.
