In a move to curb the wild spreading deadly virus corona virus, Delta State governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa on Wednesday met with highly esteemed religious leaders of all major faiths in the state to discuss alternative ways of worship.
During the meetings, the governor emphasized that not all the religious institutions will have the immediate capacity to communicate with their members through the internet.
Hence, he advised that in the interim, those that can’t, should consider utilizing conference calls.
“As a man of strong faith in the Almighty God, I told our leaders that this precaution is aimed at saving lives — and the God that we all serve hears us when we pray — regardless of our location,” the governor said.
He went on to commend the clergymen for honouring his invitation;
“I thank our religious leaders for honouring today’s engagements at the Government House in Asaba — and for their cooperation as we move forward in this fight against the Coronavirus,” he said.
