Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has revealed that God is responsible for the low fatality rate of COVID-19 recorded in the state.
He made this known on Monday at the official opening of the second session of the 34th Synod of the Diocese of Lagos, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) at Our Saviour’s Church, Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.
The governor said that less than two percent of death rate was recorded in the state. He said 10 to 15 percent of people who contracted the virus were initially projected to die, adding that God, however, prevented that from happening.
He said, “It was said that we would be taking dead bodies on the streets. But thank Almighty God, He kept all of us during the COVID-19 pandemic. We had less than two percent of fatality in Lagos when the statistics had projected we would have 10 to 15 percent.
“What we preach and heard in the Bible is here with us in today’s reality. COVID-19 has shown us in reality that we need to pray and this is why we will continue to pray in Lagos State. We need to serve wherever we find ourselves. Whatever we found our hands to do, let us do it well. Let us do it for the best of intentions because we do not know who is watching. And of course, we need to grow.”
