Allow us observe cross-over nights – Christians beg government


The Ogun State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has appealed to Governor Dapo Abiodun to allow churches observe the usual December 31 cross-over vigil into the new year.

Recall that Gov Abiodun last week banned cross-over night services in churches so as to forestall the spread of the second wave of the deadly COVID-19.

The Ogun CAN Chairman, Bishop Tunde Akin-Akinsanya, in an open letter to Abiodun, said he had received so much calls from church leaders, begging for the observance of cross-over nights on December 31, 2020.

Writing on behalf of the entire structure of CAN in Ogun State, Akin-Akinsanya craved the indulgence of Abiodun to allow for the observance of the cross-over vigil in churches in Ogun, as it is the case in Lagos State.

CAN requested that churches be allowed to observe the cross-over night from 10:30pm on December 31, 2020 till 12:15am on January 1, 2021.

The religious body also pleaded for the relaxation of curfew so that worshippers will be allowed to move back home between 12:15am and 1am of January 1.

Akin-Akinsanya assured the governor that churches will observe all necessary coronavirus protocols and guidelines recommended by government.
