Nigerian stand-up comedian and actor Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome, professionally known as Ali Baba has opined that pastors and imams are throwing dust in the eyes of the followers by telling them to pray against Coronavirus.
According to the comedian who did not sound comical, advised people to practice the precautionary measures outlined religiously and adhere to strict personal hygiene guidelines.
He added that even the Pope and senior Imams are all seeking medical instructions that cement the assertion that prayer is necessary but not against Coronavirus.
He shared this view on his Instagram page by writing:
Or any Imam… stay safe. Dont test God. You can not be holier than the Pope and other Senior Pastors. They have all said stay at home, away from exposing yourself to contamination and pray. Don’t try to impress anyone with your faith. Be guided
Meanwhile, Ghana has declared March 25, 2020, as National Day of Prayer and Fasting against Coronavirus. We hope to see this pandemic get a lasting solution as we prepare to cry unto the LORD.
