Senior pastor of Daystar Christian Centre Sam Adeyemi has advised Christians not to get themselves worked up over restrictions placed on cross-over services set to hold in churches on December 31
Several states have urged religious leaders to respect curfew while others have outrightly banned cross-over services.
Reacting to the development, Adeyemi tweeted on Tuesday,
“If you say ‘Happy New Year’ at 2pm on 31st December in Lagos, you won’t be wrong.
“You’ll only be joining people in Sydney, Australia, to say it at that time.
“In fact, you’ll be 10 hours ahead of others in Nigeria. Don’t stress over time to crossover. Just crossover.”
In Lagos, the Christian Association of Nigeria directed churches to end cross-over services by 11pm to allow residents return to their places of abode before the midnight curfew takes effect.
