The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has directed churches in Nigeria to observe March 22 and March 29 as days of prayers.
The CAN President, Rev. Samson Ayokunle, in a statement signed by the Media Assistant, Pastor Adebayo on Thursday, advised all churches to follow the guidelines for combating COVID-19 in all gatherings.
He noted that ban on the presence of more than 50 people in a gathering had been placed by most state governments and urged them to use house cell based service or online service.
Ayokunle said that where possible, particularly for churches who do not have online system, services can be broken into shifts of not more than 50 members in each shift.
