Mike Bamiloye says gay marriages, gender transplant are the reasons for the coronavirus pandemic

Nigerian evangelist and founder of Mount Zion Drama Ministry, Mike Bamiloye, who has been quite vocal on social media in recent times, has fingered gay marriage, gender transplant and corruption as the reason for the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic.

The evangelist made this known after he joined a new social media trend #WeAareSorryChallenge which people used as a channel to confess the sins of the world, as they begged God for forgiveness.

Joining the challenge, Bamiloye wrote:

“#WeAreSorryChallenge Have mercy O Lord. Gender transplant, gay marriages, massive corruption. We are sorry Lord, see where our stupidity has led us to.”

The #WeAareSorryChallengetrend was started by Olumide Oki who wrote:

“Lord, we are sorry.
We are sorry for all Evils.
We are sorry for all our stupidity.

The other day, I heard a teenager did family planning because that would make her to be free from the fear of pregnancy from her many sexual acts with numerous partners. Lord, we are sorry!

Many in my generation now engage in lots of sexual immoral acts. Young ladies now insert different kind of materials into their private parts just to satisfy their sexual immoral acts. Young guys and ladies now masturbate like they are drinking water. Lord, we are sorry!
It is no longer news that incest is the order of the day. Lord, we are sorry!

Father now engaging in sexual immoral acts with her daughter. Son now having sex with her mother. Lord, we are sorry!

A 16-year old boy getting married to a 46-year old woman. A-14-year-old girl getting married to a-54 year old man. Lord, we are sorry!

Sex with animals is normal in this generation – they even flaunt it on social media. Lord, we are sorry!

My heart shattered when I saw a lady advertising what ladies can put on their private parts just to cage men. Most men too now visit some unholy places to ‘guard’ themselves against any harm just because they want to have sex outside their marriages. Lord, we are sorry!

Gay is normal. Lesbianism is normal. Transgender is normal. Lord, we are sorry.

We cry unto you today Lord, please have mercy on your creation. Have mercy on our land.
Heal us from this plague Lord.
Heal our land, Lord.

We are sorry!

I am Olumide Oki P2O”.

WHO to resume trial of hydroxychloroquine on COVID-19

Covid-19: WHO set to resume hydroxychloroquine trials

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says it will resume its trial of hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of coronavirus (COVID-19) patients.

WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, stated this in official twitter account of the UN health agency.

According to him, the hydroxychloroquine section of the WHO’s Solidarity Trial can resume after being paused temporarily on May 25.

The trial’s Data Safety and Monitoring Committee had halted the study as a precaution in response to safety concerns raised by an observational study published in the Lancet.

Ghebreyesus said the Data Safety Monitoring Board’s review had been completed.

“Last week, the Executive Group of the Solidarity Trial decided to implement a temporary pause of the hydroxychloroquine arm of the trial, because of concerns raised about the safety of the drug.

“This decision was taken as a precaution while the safety data were reviewed; the Data Safety and Monitoring Committee of the Solidarity Trial has been reviewing the data.

“On the basis of the available mortality data, the members of the committee recommended that there are no reasons to modify the trial protocol.

“The Executive Group received this recommendation and endorsed the continuation of all arms of the Solidarity Trial, including hydroxychloroquine.

“The Executive Group will communicate with the principal investigators in the trial about resuming the hydroxychloroquine arm,’’ he said.
The director-general said the Data Safety and Monitoring Committee would continue to closely monitor the safety of all therapeutics being tested in the Solidarity Trial.

“So far, more than 3,500 patients have been recruited in 35 countries.

“WHO is committed to accelerating the development of effective therapeutics, vaccines and diagnostics as part of our commitment to serving the world with science, solutions and solidarity,’’ he said.

Meanwhile, Nigeria, on May 27, declared that it would continue with hydroxychloroquine clinical trials on COVID-19 patients.

Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, the Director-General of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) said the country would continue with the drug, in spite of the initial warning by WHO to discontinue using it.

”I do not know the data that they’re looking at, whether it’s from the Caucasian population or from the African population.

”If the data they’re looking at, and the reason for suspending the trials, is from the Caucasian population, then it may be justified.

“But I don’t think we have data from the African population yet, because our genetic makeup is different.

”If medical doctors, research scientists, pharmacists, herbal experts work together, we should conclude the clinical trial in three-four months.
“The narrative might change afterward but for now, we believe in hydroxychloroquine,” she said.

COVID-19: Lagos Catholic Archdiocese opposes continued closure of churches

Published

on

The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Most Rev Alfred Adewale Martins, on Wednesday, opposed the continued closure of worship centres by the state government.

The Archbishop in a statement by the archdiocese’s Director of Social Communications, Rev. Fr Anthony Godonu, called on the Lagos State Government to ease the restriction on religious gatherings in the state.

Martins was reacting to a statement by the state government through its Commissioner for Home Affairs, Mr Anofiu Elegushi, who on Tuesday said the ban on religious gatherings had not been lifted.

He wondered why it was concluded that the virus could spread at places of worship when people gathered in markets, motor parks and banks.

Martins stated,

“There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic is real, and we all feel concerned that the numbers are rising. However, we know also that the virus will be with us for some time and more testing will reveal more infected persons but at the same time the truth is that life must go on. We believe strongly that churches as institutions are better able to exert control of situations and maintain discipline among their faithful than most other institutions.”

“The argument that we can pray in our individual houses and God will hear our prayers is true but it is also true for us as Christians that gathering together to worship is our heritage and practice arising from the Holy Bible. It was in the gathering of the Apostles that the Holy Spirit came down upon them(Acts.2:1); the early Christians gathered together in private homes for prayers and the breaking of the Bread(Acts 2:46) until the number became too large to handle in private homes and it became necessary to have Church buildings.

“If Christians were willing to suspend their right to gather in Church buildings for the sake of common good at a time when all gatherings of people were suspended, it is unfair and unjust for government to restrict gatherings for worship when other gatherings are being allowed. Anyone who argues that gathering to worship is not essential as it is to eat and get money from the bank, obviously does not understand the spiritual, emotional, and psychological soothing that Christians get from gathering together to worship.

“In any case, are we saying that it is more dangerous for people to gather to worship than it is to gather for banking and trading or that it is gathering for worship that is responsible for the spread of the virus?”

He said the archdiocese considered as fair, the position of Lagos State Government that it would approve a set of guidelines and monitor adherence to them.

Martins stated,

“The monitoring is even more easily done in churches than in markets and motor parks or other places where the virus can even be more easily spread. This “volte-face” of government gives the impression that the position of Christians is considered secondary and of no consequence in the affairs of the state.”
