Festus Keyamo (SAN), the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has said that God is using the CoronaVirus currently ravaging the world to teach humanity a lesson.
Keyamo asked Nigerians to use the opportunity to ask God for forgiveness of sin.
“God has allowed COVID-19 to afflict the human race only to redirect our steps back to Him. We have so distorted God’s word to suit our own human weaknesses and satisfy our greed, even in supposed holy places. We should collectively ask for forgiveness and it will all end in praise.
“Aside the spiritual angle to this scourge, we must all work and pray; God can only help those who help themselves. Those recalcitrant pastors must realise this. All the directives of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control must be followed to the letter by all and sundry before it can quickly end in praise.”
