The Alasalatu Society of Nigeria and West Africa (ASONWA) in Abeokuta has lauded FG’s reopening of worship centres, mosques and churches, closed down at the wake of Coronavirus pandemic, noting it as a welcome development that will enhance non-pharmaceutical initiative at ridding the country of the deadly scourge.
According to the group through its Grand Khalifah, Sheikh Abdul-Fatah Ajani Akorede in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, the current efforts at curtailing the pandemic need be strengthened by divine seeking endeavours by people of faith.
Stating that with God, all things are possible, the group charged both Christian and Islamic clerics, scholars and leaders to support Covid 19 PTF and NCDC with prayers to enable them achieve success of their assignment. He opined that Nigerians are religiously minded and are always convinced of divinely masterminded solution to their issues.
ASONWA enjoined the various religious congregations to come to the rescue through persistent prayers and supplications to intercede in the Covid19 crisis that has put the human world in disarray.
Meanwhile, the Islamic prayer group has counselled custodian of worship places and congregants of the utmost need to observe Covid19 protocols that may go along with the relaxation, stating that such observance or compliance would not only prevent diseases like Covid19, it will promote health and prolong life. While also asking clerics of both faith to incorporate safety guidelines or Covid19 precautionary measures in their sermons as a sustainable health propaganda to check community transmission of the deadly virus among the brethren or worshippers.
