Ban on congregational Juma’at prayers in Katsina still effective
The ban on religious gatherings including congregational Juma’at prayers and Sundays church services in Katsina State is still effective, Katsina Post learned.
Recall that Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State directed for the immediate suspension of large gatherings for the purpose of Friday congregational prayers and church services across the State last week.
This was contained in a statement signed by Kasim Ibrahim Nagari, the Permanent Secretary (Political and Common Services) on behalf of the Secretary to the Government of the State.
In the letter of notification seen by Katsina Post dated the 25th of March, 2020, the Permanent Secretary also said that marriage ceremonies should be held in a low key manner.
This, according to the letter is in furtherance of context measures on the spread of Corona Virus (COVID-19) by the Katsina State government.
