The Chairman CAN, Kaduna State, Rev. John Hayab who stated this in a press statement issued on Thursday in Kaduna, noted that their attention has been drawn to unnecessary debates going-on among the public about the fight against Covid-19.
According to him, the confusion is how many people should be in a gathering or meet at a religious function.
