Buhari to make decision on reopenign of worship centers - PTF

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has said that the decision to reopen worship centers in the country will be taken by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

This was disclosed by the PTF Chairman, SGF Boss Mustapha after a meeting with the President at the Villa in Abuja.

He also stated that recommendations have been made to the President concerning the reopening of other sectors in the country

He said, “That is part of what we have considered in its totality. We await Mr President’s decision on that. Once I receive his approval, going forward, as to certain recommendations that we have put in place, we will see how that happens.

“I can assure you of one thing: the ownership of the next phase will be the responsibility of the states under national supervision and coordination because we have gone into community transmission. Where are the communities? The communities are in the states.

“So, the ownership of the next phase will be that of the states, the local governments, the traditional institutions, the religious leaders at the different levels of our communities. That is where the problem is.”
