Yobe Governor Asks Residents To Pray Harder Against COVID-19

Yobe is situated in North-East Nigeria

 

Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, has asked residents to pray harder against the spread of COVID-19.

The governor stated this during his Easter message to Christians in the state.

He said Easter provides an opportunity for people to be strong in faith and intensify prayers to seek divine intervention as the world battles the dreaded pandemic.

He charged the Christian community to exploit opportunities of Easter to pray for the state, Nigeria and humanity, thereby reminding the people of the state to observe preventive measures against the scourge.

The Governor assured that his administration is committed to the safety and well being of the citizenry and urged them to reflect on the lessons of Easter.

He also called on the people to cooperate with the state COVID-19 committee.
