The Ogun State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has appealed to Governor Dapo Abiodun to allow churches observe the usual December 31 cross-over vigil into the new year.

Recall that Gov Abiodun last week banned cross-over night services in churches so as to forestall the spread of the second wave of the deadly COVID-19.

The Ogun CAN Chairman, Bishop Tunde Akin-Akinsanya, in an open letter to Abiodun, said he had received so much calls from church leaders, begging for the observance of cross-over nights on December 31, 2020.

Writing on behalf of the entire structure of CAN in Ogun State, Akin-Akinsanya craved the indulgence of Abiodun to allow for the observance of the cross-over vigil in churches in Ogun, as it is the case in Lagos State.

CAN requested that churches be allowed to observe the cross-over night from 10:30pm on December 31, 2020 till 12:15am on January 1, 2021.

The religious body also pleaded for the relaxation of curfew so that worshippers will be allowed to move back home between 12:15am and 1am of January 1.

Akin-Akinsanya assured the governor that churches will observe all necessary coronavirus protocols and guidelines recommended by government.

Hope CAN  should be ble to convince the Governor that the Christian Cross Over is not synonimous with his own understanding of going to the other side of Life.
