“The disease was not an ordinary one and it demands spiritual solution to send it packing. Such terrible epidemic in the past had always been tackled through spiritual means even when there was no medical or scientific know-how.

“I, therefore offer to embark on spiritual activities to curb the disease in the country, I am also willing to meet with some selected Governors in the South West on ways to avert the spread of the disease”.

He called on traditional rulers and other religious leaders especially Muslims and Christians to also embark on spiritual activities to curb the menace of Coronavirus ravaging the entire world.
