The Ooni of Ife  Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi  has revealed the rationale why he chose to wear face mask at all  times, many people took to  social media to query the monarch on why should he cover his nose and mouth with mask.

Speaking on Wednesday  while handing over two motorised modular fumigators to Governor Dapo Abiodun as his donation to the Ogun State Government in support of its battle against the spread of the COVID, the monarch stressed that he has to be an example to others.

Oba Ogunwusi said that he elected to “lead by example” by wearing face mask as part of measure to protect oneself and others from the spread of Coronavirus pandemic.

 He added that “Coronavirus is real,” dangerous and respecter of nobody, advising those still being skeptical about the reality of the dreadful pandemic to adjust their thinking and face the issue that had today become a global health concern.

Many notable individuals across the globe have dished the face mask for whatever reason.

President Trump or his vice Mike Pence has never been seen wear a face mask despite the US becoming the new epicenter of the pandemic after Wuhan with records of hundreds of deaths on a daily basis.

In Nigeria, President Buhari has never been seen wear a mask despite the fact that he escaped been infected by his late Chief of Staff Abba Kyari who died recently,

In the United Kingdom, PM Boris Joshua has never been seen in public wearing a mask, even though he escaped death by the whiskers battling Covid19 and was even moved to the ICU of St Thomas hospital when his case turned  severe.

But these leaders expect their citizens to open the rules regarding Covid19, why can’t they lead by example?

Are these leaders above the law?
