CAN appeals to Ogun over crossover services

But as the fear over COVID-19 spread worsened, CAN, Ogun State chapter, on Sunday appealed to the state government to allow churches hold crossover services.

CAN in noted that the directive of the state government had caused misgivings among churches in all parts of the state.

The state governor, Dapo Abiodun, had,  in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, suspended crossover services and carnivals for the New Year in view of the increase in COVID-19 cases in the country.

The state  Chairman of CAN, Bishop  Tunde Akin-Akinsanya in a statement titled ‘a passionate appeal for the observance of cross-over night “ said there had been serious concerns over the ban.

He stated, “I hereby write on behalf of the leadership and entire structure of the  Christian Association of Nigeria,  Ogun State, to solicit  the indulgence of your Excellency to allow for the observance of the crossover services among the churches in Ogun State just as it is in our neighbouring Lagos State.”
