Pastor Oyemade had asked Adeyemi to give his perspective to his followers on the novel coronavirus disease, on how a leader can handle a crisis like the novel coronavirus disease.
While noting that people were giving extreme interpretations of the crisis, Adeyemi said that the leader’s role in a crisis is to give perspectives, stating that he studied the last global pandemic before COVID-19 to give the right perspective.
“I went online, there was a pandemic 100 years ago, let me go and study it and check it out, because the interpretation that people are giving to this pandemic, they range from one extreme to the other,” Adeyemi said.
“I don’t even want to go into the details now, but there’s quarrel on social media now; from 5G to 10G and other things. I decided to check, how did it affect Nigeria?”
