Niger’s minister of employment and labor, Mohamed Ben Omar’s cause of death has been revealed.

“Alas, it is this terrible disease which took the life of minister Mohamed Ben Omar,” public television Tele Sahel reported. Before announcing the news, the channel broadcast a recent message from the minister urging workers to protect themselves from the coronavirus.

“COVID-19 is a reality, it’s not a state of mind. It’s deadly.

It kills. It spreads at the speed of light,” Mohamed Ben Omar told the station.“We must get a grip of ourselves in order to say ‘stop this virus.’

It is discipline alone that will be the weapon to destroy this virus,” he said.President Mahamadou Issoufou said he learned the news with a “heavy heart”.

Ben Omar, who began his political life in 1999 under president Mamadou Tandja, serving in parliament and in various ministerial roles has been Issoufou’s labour minister since 2017.
