General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, former military president, has called on all Nigerians not to politize the war against the COVID-19 pandemic but to join hands together to win the battle that ravages the Earth.

General Babangida said in his Easter message to Christians across the world that this is not the time for "play game" but a concerted effort by all to wage a total war against the killer disease.

“It is time for synergy between Federal Government efforts and that of states where the majority of citizens live with attendant implications for flattening the curve, increasing testing capacity and reduce the pains and we have the lesson and experiences of China, Taiwan and other countries to benefit from.

“There is no room for blame game now but concerted support by all Nigerians and I commend with due regards to the professional display and wonderful roles of our frontline medical personnel for their patriotism, resilience, sacrifice and commitment to this fight of eradicating COVID-19,” IBB remarked.


IBB commended government at all levels for their efforts saying, “Although the numbers keep rising, the situation is still being kept at manageable levels within the limits of our health care system. However, these gains need to be sustained with the enforcement of appropriate and consistent social distancing prescription for effective prevention of the further spread of the pandemic,”.

Former Military President, enjoined all Christians in the world to use the Easter time to pray for the nation to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic even as he also urged the
Muslim ummah to use the month preceding the holy month of Ramadan to pray fervently for the grace of Allah and relieve us in the circumstances we find ourselves.

“we all have our roles to play collectively and there is a need to observe all recommendations of NCDC and adhere strictly to directives of the government on basic hygiene-Wash your hands frequently with soap under running water, avoid touching your face & high-contact surfaces and also avoiding gatherings & physical contact thus Practice social distancing to prevent the spread of the Virus" he noted.
