Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has explained that the COVID-19 pandemic has shown that Nigeria needed prayers.
Sanwo-Olu spoke during the opening ceremony of the 2nd Session of the 34th Synod of the Diocese of Lagos, Anglican Communion, yesterday.
The governor also urged Nigerians in general to intensify prayers as the country goes through trying times. He urged Nigerians to continue adhering to safety guidelines issued by the necessary agencies.
According to Sanwo-Olu: “COVID-19 has shown us in reality that we need to pray. We are not out of it yet, we need to continue to take precautions. Your prayers have really held us all together.
“The church has also participated in a series of activities during the lockdown, various donations have been given to the citizens and I thank all churches for these.
“This is a painful thing and as a government we will continue to do what we need to do to keep life alive.”
