“No divine protection for the unwary” – CAN advises the churches to adhere to the COVID protocol
Joshua Akinyemiju, chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Oyo state, has advised churches to follow the COVID safety protocol during special services scheduled for December 31st and January 1st.
Akinyemiju said this on Friday in an interview with NAN in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo.
He said security precautions, which include maintaining 50 percent capacity in worship centers, are still in place.
He also urged church leaders to always remind their congregation of the need to obey the rules and stay safe.
âThere is no divine protection for the unwary. It is our individual responsibility to stay alive, âhe said.
Akinyemiju advised Christians to remain in prayer and to rely on God in all their needs.
He also urged Christians to be well informed and actively involved in politics, just as he prayed to God to grant citizens ‘hearts’ desires in the coming year.
For his part, Samson Ajetomobi, Chairman of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) in Oyo, urged Nigerians to see the coming year as an opportunity to better serve God and the nation.
âWe should pray more than ever, make more sacrifices to defend the Church, engage in matters that affect our lives, our nation and the world at large,â he said.
â2022 will be a better year. The Lord will save us from all challenges and bring us a peaceful year and a stable economy. “
