Coronavirus: FCDA urges religious leaders, worshippers to abide by health protocols


In response to the coronavirus (Covid19) pandemic, the Federal Capital Territory, FCT Administration, has enjoined religious leaders and worshippers to follow all laid down health protocols as stipulated by the relevant health authorities for the control of the Coronavirus disease while intensifying prayers for the safety of all Nigerians.

FCDA also directed congregations at places of worship to restrict the number of worshippers to a maximum of 50 persons at any given time.

It stated that the measure also applies to social gatherings at event centers, football viewing centers and night clubs, amongst others, adding that the essence of this restriction is to make the tracking of suspected cases, if any, easier for the health authorities

Residents in the territory were also enjoined not to engage in panic buying and always seek for information about the disease from the FCT Public Health Department and other agencies of government

“FCT Administration calls for the understanding and cooperation of all residents of the FCT.”
