Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has threatened to impose a fresh restriction on worship centres in the state.
While speaking at the Saint Thomas Anglican Church in Mile 2 Diobu, in Port Harcourt Local Government Area, during Chief Azubuike Nmerukini’s family special thanksgiving service in honour of his wife, Dame Oroma Nmerukini, he expressed his displeasure at the various violations of the Covid-19 regulations.
Wike said he observed during the service that more than 80 per cent of worshippers did not wear facemasks.
In a statement by his Special Assistant, Media, Kelvin Ebiri, he warned that if violation of the protocol continued, he would revisit his position on worshippers permitted in worship centres.
“85 per cent of those who are here are not wearing facemasks. That is the problems we have. Nobody wants to obey simple instructions.
