As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases is increasing across the country, Nigeria seems not to be close to winning the war against the coronavirus pandemic.
For this reason, the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force, Boss Mustapha has said if given the power, he will declare another total lockdown across the country.
Speaking at a daily briefing, Mustapha said although it may be unpleasant, but locking down the country will go a long way in fighting COVID-19 as most Nigerians are not complying with laid down guidelines.
In his own words, “You want to hear the truth? If it were within my powers this is the time to lockdown. “Lockdown might not be a popular thing but this is the time to lockdown because I can see the attitude of Tom and Jerry. “I saw a real romance with COVID -19 today. Romance of people behaving as if the matter (virus) is over.
“It is a very serious issue and my appeal to Nigerians listening is that; let us take this thing (virus) serious. “By now, with 500 plus fatalities you can’t be ignorant, you can’t say you don’t know of anybody that has fallen victim either by way of name or pictures but today they are no more.” What is your thought, can Nigeria survive another phase of total lockdown?
