The founder of LoveWorld Incorporated, also known as Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, says the use of facemask in public is an embarrassment to science.
Oyakhilome explained that wearing facemasks in public was dangerous to human health.
He added that it puts the immunity of human beings at risk.
He said that face masks are meant to be worn by medical practitioners while carrying out medical procedures.
He said: “What we are talking about here is not politics but we are talking about saving lives, some steps being taken did not save lives but put them at risk. They put lives, immunity at risk.
“The use of facemask is so embarrassing to science, I have never seen something so embarrassing to science. Let’s forget about the politicians and talk about real science.
“The medical mask which nurses and doctors use in theaters are not useful in public, they are used in clean environments, in a certain type of environment for a certain purpose, so that is not the kind of people should wear in public, this we understand is the scientific mask that is helpful in a certain environment. This can’t be used in the park or mall.”
