The Federal government has nullified the order made by the governors on the opening of worship centers.
Subsequently, governors have been accused of going against federal government protocols designed to guide the country out of Coronavirus spread.
The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 Chairman, Boss Mustapha warned on Thursday of the danger in allowing large gatherings.
He said that the ban on gatherings of more than 20 people remained banned.
Mustapha made this known during the PTF daily meeting in Abuja.
Mustapha emphasized the “need for states to diligently implement and enforce compliance.”

Particularly, he stresses the need for the governors to provide personal and strong leadership, carry the policy of community ownership to the grass-roots, and create a deeper awareness.
Mustapha also added that decisions could inadvertently endanger the elderly, the sick, and those with underlying factors during such gatherings.
The strong advisory from the PTF is that large gatherings beyond 20 persons remain prohibited and should be adhered to.
Governors are however advised on the decision taken by some of their colleagues to permit large gatherings could endanger the lives of the citizens.
