Part of the statement that contains the request read:
“My desire is for a healthy nation. So, I prefer to have the prayers for Nigeria as a birthday gift than visitations and merry-making.
“Nigerians should engage in fervent prayers for the quick end to the COVID-19 pandemic on January 16, 2021, on my 82nd birthday.”
