According to the latest NCDC report, Nigeria now has 11,166 cases of Covid-19; with 3,329 recoveries and 315 deaths.
It was also gathered that there was a pleasant prospect that the ban on religious centres across the country due to the ravaging crisis of coronavirus scourge would be lifted any time soon.
The probability became real after the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) met with the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19.
Prior to the meeting, there has been pressure on the government to lift the ban placed on religious centres despite the spike in COVID-19 cases in Nigeria.
