The Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA, has been lashed on social media for taking it’s stance to proceed with holding Sunday service despite the spread of Corona Virus.
The Senior Pastor of the church, Biodun Fatoyinbo, has earlier started that this is following a directive from the FCT Administration.
It was however noted that measures are in place for worshippers who will be in attendance.
Reactions to COZA’s declaration via social media:
Clearly, Biodun Fatoyinbo does not have advisers that can tell him “ah oga you have been dragged repeatedly in the last few months, let’s lock up shop and stay out of the news so we don’t embarrass COZA again.” Or they told him and he didn’t listen. Smh 🤦🏾♂️

If you are one of those attending COZA's "covenant of protection" service tomorrow, my advice is, it is NOT TOO LATE to be smarter than Biodun Fatoyinbo by staying at home, #StayHomeSaveLives
Abuja has 3 confirmed #coronavirus cases, it takes JUST 1 PERSON to spread the virus. https://t.co/nFj3gcZyCq pic.twitter.com/91q1kVARcf

If the COZA church service goes ahead tomorrow, the responsibility for any mishaps following it should be laid squarely on the Minister of the FCT, the Minister of Health @DrEOEhanire and President @MBuhari.

The minister of FCT gave permission to COZA to hold their services tomorrow. This is the real issue!!! The minister should be questioned and held accountable.
