The Minister of State, Labour and Productivity, Festus Keyamo, has said God allowed Coronavirus to afflict humanity so they can retrace their steps back to him.
Keyamo urged Nigerians to ask God for forgiveness and follow the directives of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
In a tweet, Keyamo wrote: “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 & it will all end in praise.”
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, has confirmed 51 Coronavirus cases across the country with Lagos State having the highest number of patients.
According to NCDC, two infected persons have been discharged while one death has so far been recorded in Nigeria.
