Lagos State Government has said it spends between N100,000 and N1m daily on each of the COVID-19 patients in the state.

The Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, disclosed this at a media briefing on Thursday.
Abayomi explained that for mild and moderate cases, the state government spends averagely about N100,000 daily.

According to him, it costs the state government about N500,000 and N1m, to treat a patient with a serious case.
Abayomi, however, said it would be very difficult to calculate what it costs the state government to treat a COVID-19 patient, but what he provided was a rough estimate.

The cost he arrived at, factored in treatment, cost of feeding, accommodation and the services provided by the healthcare givers, etc.

Abayomi also revealed that about 2,036 COVID-19 patients have not been picked from the community in the last two weeks, due to preference for home treatment, logistic issues, wrong information provided in their forms and inability to reach such patients because their phones were switched off.

It is wrong for a Christian to date before marriage – Nigerian clergyman, Obie Jason, says

It is wrong for a Christian to date before marriage – Nigerian clergyman, Obie Jason, says
Spread the love

Nigerian clergyman, Obie Jason, has shared his opinion on dating before marriage. The clergyman said it is wrong and unbiblical for Christians to date before marriage.

Speaking during a sermon, Obie said;

”Do you know it is wrong for Christians to date? Someone would get mad but just hold on a little. If you check the scriptures, the first time the bible talked about marriage, there was no dating involved. That was Genesis Chapter 2. The bible said God caused the man to sleep, the man he made Adam and then he took the rib out of his body and then he made the woman and then brought the woman to the man. There was no dating.

You will say it was only one man and one woman. Now, the bible also showed us in the case of Isaac, the son of Abraham when he got married. There was no dating.

If you read the bible, the new testament which was written for Christians, , you would find out that the only place the bible talked about getting married or preparing for marriage was in 1st Corithians 7:9. This scriptures says ”Get married”. If you meet someone and you feel that I can go ahead with this one, the bible said just get married. You don’t need to delay.

The whole dating stuff is something that is borrowed from the world and it is destroying a lot of Christians. A lot of women and young ladies are having heartbreaks. Some of them are affected and impacted mentally because a young man will pick a lady and then carry her saying lets get to know ourselves and all, promise her marriage and after a while he will dump her and the lady will have heartbreak. We see a lot of things going wrong”

He went on to fault clergymen who subscribe to dating and have even written books about dating.

”You can never see anywhere in the bible where it is stated that we should date and the scriptures never imply that. That is something borrowed from the world and it is not good. When you date, you get dirty. Dating is simply a game played by unbelievers” he said
