COVID-19: Mosques in Ekiti ready for reopening – NSCIA
The Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) in Ekiti says mosques in the state are now well-positioned to meet the conditions for reopening amidst the COVID-19 pandemic
The group stated this in a communiqué signed by the chapter’s president, Alhaji Yaqubu Sanni, after a stakeholders meeting.
The communiqué was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday in Ado-Ekiti.
NAN reports that the meeting was convened by the NSCIA in conjunction with the League of Imams and Alfas in South-West, Edo and Delta led by its President-General, Alhaji Jamiu Bello.
The communiqué said the meeting was called to evaluate the level of the preparedness of the Muslim community on the conditions for the reopening of Juma’at mosques in the state.
It would be recalled that the state government had laid down certain conditions to be met before mosques and other worship centres could reopen for normal congregational prayers.
