Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo on Thursday stated that God allowed coronavirus to afflict humans so they can redirect their steps back to Him.
Keyamo in a tweet said Nigerians should ask for forgiveness and also follow the directives of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
He said,“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.
“Aside the spiritual angle to this scourge, we must all work and pray; God can only help those who help themselves. Those our recalcitrant Pastors must realise this. All the directives of
@NCDCgov must be followed to the letter by all and sundry before it can quickly end in praise.”
