Dr. Raji AbdulRazaq, the Kwara State Commissioner for Health, says the state has not lifted the ban on religious activities placed to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
AbdulRazaq stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Ilorin.
He said although the Federal Government hinted on lifting the ban on religious activities in the country, it had however given modalities to all the states on how best to go about it.
He added that the state government would meet to deliberate and come out with what was best and would protect the people in the state.
The commissioner, therefore, warned that the government had not lifted any ban and no religious house should disregard the directives on social distancing.
He added that if there was any change to the directives earlier given, the state government under Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq would communicate same to the public.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Kwara State currently has 111 confirmed case of COVID-19 and one recorded death.
