In a recent press statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Dennis Otu, Sheriff hailed Muslims in the state and Nigeria for the successful completion of the month-long Ramadan fasting.
According to him, even if this year’s Eid-el-Fitr was celebrated in an unusual atmosphere because of the coronavirus pandemic, God will surely win this battle for mankind.
He added that Nigerians should keep showing love while being generous during the deadly outbreak.
His words, ”There is no doubt that you are celebrating this year’s Eid-el-Fitr in an unusual atmosphere because of the Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world. But God will surely win this battle for mankind.
”I want to urge Muslim faithful to use the celebration of the Eid-el-Fitr to build a relationship of friendship and harmony with fellow citizens of other faith. Let us collectively pray for an end to the COVID -19 pandemic in our country in particular and the world in general”.
“Let us show love and be generous because we are passing through a period that we have never experienced before in our land and with God, everything is going to be fine again. We need love, peace and justice in our nation now more than ever before”.

Coronaviruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can be mild, such as some cases of the common cold (among other possible causes, predominantly rhinoviruses), and others that can be lethal, such as SARS, MERS, and COVID-19. Symptoms in other species vary: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory tract disease, while in cows and pigs they cause diarrhea. There are yet to be vaccines or antiviral drugs to prevent or treat human coronavirus infections.
Coronaviruses constitute the subfamily Orthocoronavirinae, in the family Coronaviridae, order Nidovirales, and realm Riboviria. They are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry. The genome size of coronaviruses ranges from approximately 27 to 34 kilobases, the largest among known RNA viruses. The name coronavirus is derived from the Latin corona, meaning “crown” or “halo”, which refers to the characteristic appearance reminiscent of a crown or a solar corona around the virions (virus particles) when viewed under two-dimensional transmission electron microscopy, due to the surface covering in club-shaped protein spikes.
Human coronaviruses were first discovered in the late 1960s. The earliest ones discovered were an infectious bronchitis virus in chickens and two in human patients with the common cold (later named human coronavirus 229E and human coronavirus OC43). Other members of this family have since been identified, including SARS-CoV in 2003, HCoV NL63 in 2004, HKU1 in 2005, MERS-CoV in 2012, and SARS-CoV-2 (formerly known as 2019-nCoV) in 2019. Most of these have involved serious respiratory tract infections.
