It was reliably gathered from top government sources that fears that Akeredolu may have contracted the pandemic became rife after the governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, tested positive for the virus on Tuesday.

Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, is currently in self-isolation to erase any possibility of him contracting Coronavirus, SaharaReporters can report.

Also, the governor on Tuesday cancelled all official engagements for 14 days.

It was reliably gathered from top government sources that fears that Akeredolu may have contracted the pandemic became rife after the governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, tested positive for the virus on Tuesday.

"The governor (Akeredolu) was in Abuja last week and even met with President Muhammadu Buhari alongside other APC governors in the wake of the dreaded Coronavirus.

"So, he has to take precaution and when the governor of Bauchi tested positive, he has to tactically isolate himself because no one can say if there was close contact during their meeting in Abuja,"
a source said.

However, in a statement on Tuesday night, spokesperson for the Ondo State Government, Donald Ojogo, confirmed that the governor had directed the immediate cancellation of all official engagements to his office.

According to him, the governor had also ordered the immediate closure of all markets and malls across the state in order to stem the spread of Coronavirus.

"Under this fresh directive which is for a period of seven days in the first instance, only the sale of life-saving and sustaining items like food, water and medicals shall be allowed.

"Similarly, Governor Akeredolu reiterates that the suspension of political gatherings and meetings is still in force.

"The governor seeks the cooperation and understanding of all residents in the state to keep Ondo safe from COVID-19,
" the statement reads.

Already, Governor Akeredolu has activated the Infectious Disease Hospital along Igbotoro Road in Akure in order to attend to both suspected and confirmed cases in the state.

This message is a reply. The comment which my argument replies was given in a Coronavirus thread . This reply is valid, factual and does not break any rule of Nairaland.


Jeromejnr:
I have been seeing some deluded Athiest on here bashing religion and saying things like all religions (especially Christianity) are waiting for scientists to find a cure then they will thank God instead of the scientists.

First of all, many of those scientists are Christian's.

Secondly, most of the drugs you enjoy today were discovered by Christians e.g. Penicillin.

Thirdly, Hospitals were first founded by Christians.

Fourthly, United States were most of these cures come from was founded by strong Christian fathers who gave the country a good foundation.

Lastly, Athiests enjoy the benefits of Christian prayers today (although they don't know it). Because of this, most of them are still alive. But with that same breath, they choose to curse God.

So the question is, what has Athiesm contributed to the world?


Not up to Ten centuries ago when modern science was still young, Galileo Galilei, a Catholic, was standing before a criminal court which was also Ecclesiastical (christian bishops were part of the court). Skeptical Galileo had worked on his telescope , he was not lying. He saw that there were other planets and that the Earth revolved around the sun. In his time, religion was mixed with governance and not distinct from the State of Rome.

Galileo, like other scientists of his time , was at the verge of being sentenced to death for apostasy and blasphemy. The government not only beheaded scientists in that dark age, but also hung and burnt them on stake. Why was the Father of Modern Day Astronomy, the one whose foundational argument about the solar system has led to the establishment of space organizations like NASA today, risking a death sentence at a christian court?

The answer is simple. According to Joshua in the Bible when he went to war (would be termed a genocide today) he prayed to God and the "Sun stood still". The christian court argued that if Joshua in the Bible agreed that it was the "sun that stood still" then it means the sun was the moving solar body for nothing that does not move can stand still. The Christian court also argued that David in his Psalms acknowledged that God makes sun to rise from the East and set in the West. How then could a "stupid scientist" argue that the sun does not move . How could such "fool" rather the earth revolves.

There is no doubt that Galileo was a Catholic and a christian. But there is huge doubt that Christianity influenced his breakthrough in science. Christianity wanted to alter , disrupt and hinder his breakthrough. Christianity wanted him dead for apostasy and blasphemy even though he agreed to being a Christian. What do you think would happen if he outrightly said he was not one?

That's the story you do not see. When we talk about science and religion , we are not asking whether a Christian, Muslim , Buddhist or Atheist made a positive breakthrough in science. No, the procedures of science are Universal and as long as a person of any religion , race or gender follows that procedure, he will arrive at a scientific and real conclusion.
When we argue about science and religion we argue whether a telescope or a bible gave humanity initial knowledge about the status of the solar system.

When we argue about science and religion we argue whether it is a hand sanitizer (based on reason) or an anointing oil ( based on faith ) that washes away strains of the Coronavirus in our palms.

For humanity sake, coming together now to fight this virus irrespective of our political, religious or social affiliation should be on everyone mind now. You think the Elites having it will keep you and your family safe? But I say you're wrong.

Nigerian Medical Association had to cancel it's strike because it knows the destructive nature of the virus yet I see kids here being happy whenever a case is confirmed especially among the leaders forgetting that the higher the number of positive case the vulnerable they become.

How can he not know if he made contact with the Bauchi state governor. Is he a baby? Keep on playing politics with his life. There is no shame in coming in contact with someone that has the virus.
The only thing I can say is that they brought this upon themselves, when it comes for them to be proactive and sensitive, they turn blind eyes.
May all who have been affected recover in Jesus name Amen!

The whole Corona virus thing is now showing on our useless politicians who have turned themselves to Aso Ebi that attend weddings in pack. If there's a wedding in sambisa forest they are there, if it's in Bauchi they're all there.

That Abba kyari guy, there's no way he won't have multiple contacts with Buhari to give him reports of his journey to Siemens office in Germany.

Trust Aso rock people at your peril, kyari turned himself into a mini god who wants to control everything. Now he's the one who has brought in Trodjan horse virus into the Villa. Buhari and his forty thieves can deny positive results all they want, but the truth will be known in 14 days or more

But why should we be the one suffering from their inadequacies bayi?

Nigerians, brace yourself. If you are not rich or wealthy enough, stay at home. The ventilators in the countries are for the rich,politicians and their families.

Even if it is garri ,sugar and groundnut, buy it at home. May Allah help us(especially the masses) to come through this.

I could remember how some idiots were calling those of us that was against the idea of allowing people from endemic countries to enter NIgeria, all sorts of names.

At least, carry out tests on them before allowing them in. No. Write your name in the attendance list and go in.


I am wondering where those yoyos are now?

all these nigerians politicians are self-isolating for nothing. they did not come in contact with anyone. they are only running away nd canceling their political duties but they will not reject the pay that comes along.

they should all come out and tell us what to do. and they should tell us how to survive this corona since they have embezzled all the money.

whoever wants to isolation should go to the isolation centres that they built or they have been collecting maintenance money for since they got into office.

You cannot isolate yourself inside your own house. go to the proper place so that you can get proper medical advise. they should all stop fooling their grandfathers.

now they are closing their doors. then let all their aides and security officials also self-isolate. the police and military should equally self-isolate let us see who will do his job.

a brave man comes out. the mayors in italy are roaming the streets trying to help their brothers while our leaders are now all hiding in their mansions claiming isolation.

there is no one who has not come in contact with someone in that country. everyone cannot isolate himself. someone has to fight.

i repeat, whosoever wants to isolate himself should go to the proper isolation centre.
