President Dr Julius Maada Bio is today Monday 1st June expected to meet with the Inter Religious Council of Sierra Leone at State House to discuss the possibility of lifting of extending the ban on the closure of Mosques and Churches as a result of COVID-19 across the country.

It can be recalled that late last week, the Inter Religious Council met with President Bio where the President of the Inter Religious Council, Sheik Abubakarr Conteh, appealed for government to consider reviewing the sanction on the closure of Churches and Mosques, so as to help them overcome the great challenge of meeting their people and for ease of sensitization and education.

In his response, President Julius Maada Bio encouraged the religious leaders to go back to the drawing board and come up with suggestions as to how to handle the spread of the Virus among their congregations should the ban is lifted today.

The president further asked the religious leaders to meet him today to discuss their suggestions, while also using the opportunity to commend them for their support to government in the COVID-19 response, adding that the fight required collective efforts.
