The Benue State Government has ordered churches and mosques in the state to reopen for activities.
This was made known in the resolution of the State Executive Council meeting with the State Action Committee on COVID-19 held on Thursday at Government House, Makurdi
The resolution read in part: “The workers are advised to always wear face masks and maintain social distancing as they go to work.
“Churches and Mosques with effect from today Thursday, May 21, 2020, are to hold staggered worship sessions.
“This implies that a Church or Mosque which before now held two worship sessions should henceforth conduct four sessions in a day.
“Street trading is encouraged but strictly obeying social distancing protocol on COVID-19.
“Markets will be partially opened to enable traders access their shops.”
