COVID-19: Ondo Closes Borders, Declares Three-Day Fasting And Prayers by CapitalHYC(m): 6:01am On Apr 02, 2020
As the cases of coronavirus continue to rise in Nigeria, t[b]he Ondo state government has decla­red a three-day period of fasting and prayers commencing from Th­ursday, 2nd to Satur­day, 4th April for Ondo State and the country to seek the face of God over the pandemic.[/b]

This was made known in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Orientation in the state, Mr. Donald Ojogo, where it was also revealed that the state would be closing it’s land and sea borders with its neighboring states of Ekiti, Osun, Ko­gi, Edo as well as Ogun State.

See the full statement below;

“Having observed the trend in respect of COVID-19 and the pos­sibility of its unde­terminable spread, the Government of Ondo State has ordered the closure of its borders with the neig­hbouring states of Ekiti, Osun, Ko­gi, Edo and Elefon, our coastal border with Ogun which in the recent past, has witnessed heavy human traffic from Lagos and Ogun.

This order prohibits inter-state travels into the state and takes effect from 6.­00 pm on Thursday, 2nd April, 2020.

Secu­rity operatives as well as monitoring te­ams have been put on the alert to enforce this order as part of measures already taken to stem COVID­-19 incursion into Ondo State.


To His Glory, Ondo State has remained one of the states in the country without a single confirmed ca­se of COVID-19.

This is an uncommon Grace Government and ind­eed, the people must not take for grante­d.

As a way of thanking God and seeking His face for this immea­surable Grace and co­ntinuous Favour, Gov­ernment hereby decla­res a 3-day period of fasting and prayers commencing from Th­ursday, 2nd to Satur­day, 4th April for Ondo State and the co­untry at large.

The government, therefore, urges the good peo­ple of Ondo State to use this period to stand firm in prayers and remain inexora­ble in His praise as mankind faces this pandemic.”

In the words of the governor via his verified instagram handle
"In response to the trend in the number of cases around Ondo State, I have ordered the immediate closure of our borders with the neighbouring states of Ekiti, Osun, Kogi, Edo and in particular Elefon, our coastal boundary with Ogun State.

Also even as we play our part in putting in place precautionary measures, Isolation Centres, Treatment Centres, Massive Sensitization via all our TV, radio and other social media platforms, we should also endeavor to seek the face of our maker, the all knowing God, the doctor of doctors, in a way of thanking God for his grace, co­ntinuous favour enjoyed in our State ,
According to 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sins and will heal their land.” Gov­ernment hereby declares a 3-day period of fasting and prayers commencing from Th­ursday, 2nd to Satur­day, 4th April for Ondo State and Nigeria"

Prayer Prayer Prayer....

We are only deceiving ourselves. Infact we are more religious than the people that brought the religion to us.

The black man believes prayer is the answer and solution to everything.

Developed nations didn't reach that level by mere prayers. Sky scrappers and several world inventions is not achieved by prayers.
It is not all about prayer and fasting, what actions are we taking?
Billionaires didn't become one by prayers.
3 days fasting and prayers...

If we have to pray, let's pray that we don't come in contact with a carrier, and let's pray that God should open the mind of understanding of our scientists to find the cure of convid 19

The closing of the borders is coming a bit late; he could have done that before now since all the States surrounding Ondo State are having increased number of confirmed cases on a daily basis. However, it is better late than never. May the Lord answer their prayers and our collective prayers too.
PLS STAY SAFE.

Prayer does not work,
Fasting is just a punishment of starvation to yourself.

Bishop Oyedepo knows that prayers don't work that's why he is donating ambulance that will take people to hospitals.
Prayer can't heal you from covid19.
Only your immune system can if strong enough.


Nigerians failed to build enough hospitals, they were busy building mosques and churches instead of hospitals and laboratories.

The Bible prophesies are being fullfilled. You should study the Bible prophesies and stop ignorantly accusing God. This is no accident.

The global crisis/chaos will bring forth the One World Government, A United world.
The False Man of Peace, the Antichrist is going to come on the stage soon. But first is the Rapture event.

The death toll I heard about is two.
One was the person from oversea AMD the other the NNPC man. So which ones are the daily you talking about?
Are they your family members and you?
Learn the ways of God and guide your tongue.
If God had not been for Nigeria, things would have been more disastrous than this.

If you don't believe in God, is a different thing but don't say God has forsaken us.

Maybe you are trying to say, God has forsaken you right? And if He has, check you ways, repent and ask for forgiveness. He's ready to forgive you and turn your situation around.
