Minister of State, Labour and Productivity, Festus Keyamo, has linked the affliction arising from Coronavirus to God’s wrath on humanity as a way to draw their attention back to him.
He therefore 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.”
