COVID-19 is real, return to God – Recuperated Emir of Daura



Emir of Daura

Umar Faruq, emir of Daura in Katsina state, says COVID-19 is not a joke.

Umar, who was speaking on his recovery from the disease, on Saturday, described the pandemic as a “dangerous period” for the world.

The emir had contracted the virus but was discharged a few days ago from the Federal Medical Centre in Katsina.

He asked Nigerians to “return to God” and also to support the government’s effort to manage the health crisis.

“All praises be to Almighty Allah for taking us through this time, the most dangerous period in the entire world,” The PUNCH quoted him as saying.

“I want to draw the attention of the people world over that the current pandemic is not a joke hence people should fear God and return to God.

“If the world is not settled, people should not expect anything good even if you are physically healthy. Let the governor know that I am now fully recovered.”
