“Also, I am ready to appease the gods through rituals in some selected cities within the South West region as a means of solving the epidemic”
Though,he statement got backlash from Nigerians condemning his utterances,some Nigerians wrote: You can appease the gods to cleanse flu virus but ur gods can’t cleanse our politicians who have unwittingly killed millions of Nigerians since 1960 – Oga go and sit down jahre . Yeye dey smell.
