CoronaVirus: Plateau Government Clears the Air on Banning Prayers in Churches and Mosques

The Plateau State Commissioner of information has released a press statement in which he cleared the air on the information about bans on prayers in Mosques and Churches.

It has come to the attention of the Plateau State Government that false information is making the rounds that the Plateau State Government Denies Banning Prayers in Mosques and Churches Government has banned prayers in Mosques and other Muslim places of worship.
This is not only false and malicious but an attempt by merchants of conflict to disrupt the prevailing peace in the state.
For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Simon Lalong's broadcast message is clear and unambiguous.
The Governor directed for the observance of two meters social distancing and a congregation  of not more than 50 persons at religious gatherings of all faiths.
Additionally, the Government banned outright cultural festivals and anniversaries while funerals and marriages should be among family members.
Religious and community leaders should therefore guide their members appropriately and disregard the rumours and divisive message being peddled by perpetrators of conflict.
Governor Lalong thanks the people of Plateau State for their cooperation so far..
All citizens are assured that the Rescue Administration will ease the restrictions placed to ensure the  coronavirus pandemic does not infect any citizen resident Plateau or visiting  the state state for business.
The Government implores citizens coming in or passing through the state  to subject themselves to screening at the state Government designated points.
