Do not relax lockdown because of religion – Obi


The former Governor of Anambra State and the ex Vice presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party has advised States not to relax their lockdown because or religious activities, since social distancing is all we get to defeat the virus.

Recently, some states like Kastina state have relaxed their lockdown for Friday Jumat prayers, while Ebonyi state relaxed theirs for sunday worship. There are indications that some other states are muting the possibility of relaxing theory to allow for easter celebration.
Obi, on Friday said its wrong to relax lockdown as faithfuls can worship at home. In his words: “It is wrong to relax a lockdown because of religious faithfuls. You can fellowship at home without congregating. We have a crisis that we don’t have the resources to manage. It has been established that social distancing remains the best option in curbing #COVID19”.
