The National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, Barrister Olusegun Bamgbose, Esq., has advised President Muhammadu Buhari immediately to open worship centers in the country.

Bamgbose noted that religious houses are the country’s powerhouses, adding that continued shutdown of such places could spell the Nigerian political leaders doom.

The senior lawyer also urged the Federal Government to open up schools in batches in a statement to Live News Nigeria on Monday.

According to him, “There is no question that Nigeria ‘s temporary suspension of religious activities was due to the ravaging pandemic.

“In fact, the virus has not subsided. In reality people are dying every day. The number of individuals infected is rising daily. That is undoubtedly a sad creation.

“Doubtless, the lockdown is appropriate to stop the spread of the dreaded virus that has claimed many lives in Nigeria.

“Nonetheless, the Federal Government has become necessary to declare mosques and churches open to normal service.

“The Federal Government will know that the country ‘s religious houses are powerhouses.

“This nation will cease to exist as one country but for the Moslems and Christians prayers. The time is ripe for opening the powerhouses to normal services.

“I believe I have God’s permission to make that comment. This should be done in order to avoid an open disaster in high quarters no later than 19th June 2020.

“Continuing the shutdown of religious houses could spell doom for our leaders. Yet one should advise the preachers of wealth to soft pedal on this.

“In the same way, the Federal Government would be advised to open up batch colleges.

“The students at our tertiary institutions should be permitted to resume the JSS 3, SS3 and final year for obvious reasons.

“They should be allowed to resume their exams and take them on. Closing the schools indefinitely may be counterproductive.
