In a telecast, he said: “Good morning and win today! Following the announcement that church services will resume in Lagos on August 9 – that is, this coming Sunday – I wish to commend the authorities for their efforts so far.
“However, having heard from the authorities, we are now waiting to hear from God. Please be assured that as soon as we hear from God, we will inform you when our services will resume. Emmanuel – God is with us.”
The Federal Government placed a ban on religious gatherings last March to limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It relaxed the ban on June 2, but granted states the discretion for local implementation of the order.
