Prophet T.B. Joshua of the Synagogue of All Nations has reacted to the ban on religious gatherings placed on Churches and Mosques by the Lagos and Ogun State governments.
Recall that the Lagos Government banned all religious gatherings involving more than fifty worshippers following the outbreak of Coronavirus.
The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, has announced that Nigeria has eight cases of Coronavirus after five new cases were confirmed on Wednesday.
The founder of SCOAN while reacting to the development called on church members to adhere to the instructions.
He noted that the government was appointed by God and hence the need to obey their directives.
The statement which was released on the church Facebook page read, “Viewers, listen to your government and obey the instructions given to you. For example, instructions concerning gathering at this time.”
“They are authorities established by God (Romans 13). A good Christian is a good citizen. Whatever life brings, you are not alone. We are on our knees praying for you and your nation.”
“God bless you as you obey. Jesus is Lord!”
