The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has said prayers have played an “active role” in Nigeria’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The SGF stated this when he appeared before the House of Representatives on Tuesday.
Mustapha, who is also the head of the Presidential Task Force on Coronavirus, claimed Nigeria “would have crumbled” if not for prayers.
“Prayer has played an active role in sustaining us as a people and as a country. I believe that the place of prayer is significance and I mentioned that when I said we will consult with traditional and religious leaders,” he said.
Nigeria has so far recorded 2,802 cases of COVID-19.
Out of that tally, 417 have recovered and 93 died.
