The Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID -19 has bemoaned the rate Christians are being reckless in the face of ravaging coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking at the Interdenominational Church Prayer Service which was organized by the Nigeria Interreligious Council (NIREC) in Abuja, Boss Mustapha said all Nigerians must come to term with the reality of COVID-19.
He appealed to religious leaders to be at the forefront of enlightening their followers on the dangers of the virus and the need to stay safe.
Quoting from the book of Proverbs, he said takin precaution is highly scriptural.
According to him, “If you have no business going out, stay at home, it is scriptural and I will undertone this with a quotation from Proverbs 14:16 where the bible says the Wise are cautious and avoid danger, fools plunge ahead with reckless confidence. I see a lot of Christians exhibiting reckless confidence and the Bible describes them as fools.
“Stay at home, if you don’t have a business going out. That is the safest place you have. If you have every genuine reason to go out, as mandatory, wear a face mask.
“My admonition to the church is that we must stop the exhibition of reckless confidence and tell our people the truth and ask them to do the proper things so that they can stay safe for their families, communities and for the body of Christ”.
