COVID-19: We Will Lockdown All Churches Soon-Governor Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike, has revealed plans to lockdown all churches in the state soonest.

Governor Wike threatened to impose another lockdown following the unruly behaviours of persons who hold the opinion that COVID-19 pandemic is not real.

Governor Wike on Sunday, December 27, said that most church members openly flout covid-19 rules by abandoning their facemasks.

He revealed that most persons go to market places without observing social distancing and hygiene measures, stressing that the government will be forced to impose another state-wide lockdown if people keep disobeying standing orders to stop the spread of the virus.

Governor Wike said: “When you go to some churches, they don’t wear mask. Go to market, they don’t wear mask. They believe COVID is not real. It’s not real because it has not happened to you; nobody had died whom you know. When somebody has died and the person was close to you, you will know that COVID is real.

“If you don’t comply, I have no choice, but to shut down the churches; Pentecostal, Catholic, Anglican. I have no choice because when you have it, who spends the money? It is the state that treats. So, we need to use the money for some other things, but not for this. Let us discipline ourselves and know that COVID is real. Let nobody tell you that there is nothing like COVID. It’s real.”
