Boss Mutapha, secretary to the govt of the federation (SGF), credits prayers for a way Nigeria has managed to handle the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said this while addressing the house of representatives on Tuesday, May 5. Mustapha, who heads the presidential task force on COVID-19, said Nigeria “would have crumbled” if not for prayers.
The SGF was at the green chamber alongside other members of the PTF to brief the lawmakers on efforts being made to reply to the health crisis.
He said while the country has continued to enhance in management of the pandemic, “prayers have successfully helped Nigeria to be where we are now.”
“Prayer has played a lively role in sustaining us as nation and as a rustic . i think that the place of prayer is significance and that i mentioned that once I said we’ll consult traditional and non secular leaders,” he said.
“I believe that prayer helps and even during this very holy month of Ramadan, people are praying; praying to God for His mercies, his grace to sustain and protect the people of this country and world over.
“Given the directions and given the projections and modelling, we need to have crumbled by now. But I can assure you that the place of prayer has played a lively role and active part in sustaining us as nation and as a rustic .”
