The President of the Muslim Community in Ifeland, Alhjai Ibikunke Lawal, says humanity needs divine intervention to combat COVID-19.
Lawal said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Ile-Ife.
He commended the efforts of the Federal Government in the fight against the pandemic across the country.
Lawal, however, argued that closure of mosques and churches was not the solution to curtailing the spread of the COVID-19 in the country.
He appealed to government to open churches and mosques for Christians and Muslims to give spiritual support to government to jointly tackle the pandemic.
“In as much as banks and markets have been opened with conditions, churches and mosques too must be considered with conditions guiding them,” he said.
