- Dino Melaye says the only solution to coronavirus is for the world to seek forgiveness and return to the Lord's way
- The former senator representing Kogi West further stresses that face mask and hand sanitisers cannot curb the global epidemic
- Nigerians, however, differ on Melaye's opinion as many social media users told the senator to look for a miracle in science
Amid growing scare over coronavirus, Dino Melaye, a former senator representing Kogi West, says face masks and hand sanitisers are not the solutions but a remorseful return to the way of the Lord.
Legit.ng recalls that coronavirus, officially known as Covid-19, took a hair-raising dimension as four more cases were reported barely twenty-four hours after presidential aide Tolu Ogunlesi announced five more cases.
With all activities currently on lockdown due to the spread of the life-threatening disease, Melaye said repentance and return to the Lord is the lasting solution to the epidemic that has surged the world into unrest.
Taking to his Twitter page on Thursday, March 19, the former Kogi federal lawmaker shared a text from the bible, precisely 2 Chronicles 7. 13 -15 where God says "If people turn away from evil, . . . I'll make their land prosperous again."
Melaye captioned the picture with "No it is not handed mask and sanitisers, it is (an emoji pointing down to the Bible verse)."
Nigerians have, however, replied the former senator, with a section of Twitter users making a counter-position against the former lawmaker's submission.
A social media user, Desmond2, commented: "No is this. Isaiah 26:20 to 21: Go home, my people, and lock your doors! Hide yourselves for a little while until the LORD’s anger has passed."
Another user, Emmanuel, said: ''So Ebola that left was because we cried to God? After you divert constituency projects to personal luxuries."
Another comment read: "100% this, but still wear masks, wash your hands and avoid crowded places. Don't let uneducated people lead you down the wrong path. It is extremely important to pray and read the scripture, but please. STAY SAFE!
