After spending days in isolation under the care of health practitioners, the Catholic Bishop of Nigeria’s Yola Diocese has recovered from COVID-19, he told journalists at his residence, thanking all those who have accompanied him spiritually.
During the Saturday, September 5 press conference, Bishop Stephen Dami Mamza who had tested positive for COVID-19 August 23 challenged Nigeria’s Federal government to work toward improving the country’s health care.
“I have been certified free of COVID-19 and I want to use this opportunity to thank very sincerely all people of goodwill across the country who have been praying for me in order that I get well and I want to assure everybody that I’m now physically well,” Bishop Mamza told journalists in a televised press conference.
He added, “COVID-19 is not a death sentence and it is not as bad as people are talking about it.”
“If you get it, you will get well even if you have the underlying sicknesses. Fear is the one that can paralyze someone,” the 50-year-old Prelate who doubles as the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Adamawa state further said.
