The pandemic is a major obstacle to the growth of the Nation’s socio-political and economic fortune, as we all know, no country can stand on its feat if a pandemic stays for too long.
There will be an adverse effect, and this is the main reason every citizens must turn to God in prayers at this Easter and beyond. We need to reclaim our lives, economy and continue from a point of strength again.
