The General Overseer of the Household of God Church, Pastor Chris Okotie has rejected the new guidelines laid down by the Lagos state government in a bid for reopening all religions centres across the state.
On Thursday, the Lagos state government announced that all religious centres should be reopened in two weeks.
Following this announcement, the Lagos state government laid down some rules as a guideline for all religious leaders to follow. This rule includes the compulsory use of face masks and the restriction of people below the age of 15 and above 65 years from the worship centres.
On hearing this, the General Overseer of the Household of God Church, Chris Okotie rejected the guidelines, saying the “fulfilment of the Bible prophecy” against the church is already being played out and that rearranging the church’s mode of worship is “to deny God the divine prerogative of congregational adoration”
The clergyman added saying that, his church will remain closed till the virus is gone whereby the guidelines laid down won’t be effective again as people could go back to the normal way of worship.
