“I have taken the lead, others in the mission should follow.
“I am sure soon Coronavirus will be a thing of the past, because Jesus Christ died for us that we may live, I urge Nigerians and Christians to have hope in Jesus Christ.
“We shall overcome Coronavirus because with hope and faith , we are more than conquerors. Coronavirus shall come to an end. God heal your people in Jesus name Amen,” he said.
