The state Chairman, CAN, Apostle Joshua Akinyemiju, gave the advise in a statement on Wednesday in Ibadan.

Akinyemiju commended the state Gov. Seyi Makinde for giving approval that the Thursday crossover night worship to usher in 2021 be observed in the state.

Makinde, however, endorsed the brief by Prof Temitope Alonge, the Chairman of the COVID-19 Taskforce Technical Team, on Wednesday, which reviewed the earlier pronouncement by the team and lifted the curfew.

Akinyemiju, who expressed delight at the decision of the governor, warned that worship centres must adhere strictly to the advisories and guidelines put in place to prevent the spread of the virus in the state.

They should put on their face masks, provide washing hand basin as well as keep physical distancing in the worship centre.

“Every church leader in the state should please ensure that the crossover does not exceed 12:30 am."

He prayed that the governor would continue to drive the leadership of the state at a balance without error.
