Pastor Tunde Bakare warns against reopening of churches despite Lagos govt's order

Pastor Tunde Bakare of Citadel Global Community Church, CGCC, has spoken against the plan to reopen worship centers which are on lockdown due to COVID-19.

In a sermon delivered on Sunday, Bakare told Christians not to allow any religious leader or government to expose them to danger.

Bakare said: “I have to appeal to you once again, please keep safe and do your best to stay alive. Do not let anyone, whether religious leader or governmental leader, to drive you like a sheep to the slaughter.

“If they (the government and the disease control authorities) said that the month of August is going to be the peak of the infection, why should they ask people to rush in (re-open the churches) again?

“Please keep safe and do your best to keep alive by keeping all the necessary rules. We know that by the grace of God this pandemic like the others before it has an expiry date. It shall not see our end. We shall see its end in the mighty name of Jesus.”

This comes hours after Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State announced that worship centers can reopen in the state from August 7.
