The Federal Government has accused some faith based  organisations of sabotaging efforts of the Government in fighting against COVID-19 pandemic.

He accused some of them of  holding large gatherings events which is against the laid down coronavirus protocols.

The accusation was made on Thursday by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Chairman, Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Mr Boss Mustapha.

He added that the Federal Government through the the PTF will continue to collaborate with pertinent stakeholders on the pandemic.

He said: “We have observed, rather sadly, that Nigerians, particularly some faith-based organisations, have continued to hold events of large gatherings capable of spreading the virus.

“The PTF urges all sub-national entities that signed the protocols with these organisations, and have primary responsibility for enforcing the protocols, to step up their roles of enforcement,” Mustapha said.
