The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, has urged Muslims to use the Ramadan period as an avenue to pray against the spread of Coronavirus in Nigeria.
The monarch in a press statement sent to Journalists on Monday said the virus is an enemy against mankind.
“Let us ask for God’s protection over health workers because they are risking their lives to ensure that we do not get swept away by this angry flood of COVID-19. They are our warlords and we must continue to support them with prayers while we equally wish the patients speedy recovery.
“Although it is heartbreaking to realize that we are welcoming the holy month of Ramadan silently without the usual large gatherings of prayers, lectures and others, we must remain grateful to Allah for preserving our lives up till this moment as we await the better days ahead.
“In the same vein, I commend the matured understanding of our Islamic leaders, Muslim brothers and sisters towards combating this enemy. We must not get tired, we must not relent in our efforts until this pandemic is defeated”. Ooni said.
