Festus Keyamo warns pastors as Nigeria’s cases increase – Covid 19

Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labor and Productivity, has cautioned pastors in Nigeria to follow directives from National Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, as the country battles the outbreak of Coronavirus.

NCDC on Wednesday affirmed five new cases with Rivers State recording its first case.

Two of the new cases were affirmed in Abuja, and another two in Lagos State.

Talking on the spread of Coronavirus, Keyamo took to his Twitter page to admonish pastors to take note of NCDC precautionary measures in order to stop the spread of COVID-19

As stated by him, God can only help those who help themselves this period and Nigeria can only overcome Coronavirus if citizens follow the directives.

The post read: “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.”
