Former governor of Anambra State and former vice president candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Peter Obi has said it is not right to relax the lockdown for religious purpose.
Peter Obi said this during a program on Arise Television.
The former governor said the coronavirus pandemic is going out of hands and the nation lack the resources to manage it.
Speaking further, he noted the states that have relaxed the lockdown to accommodate the Easter celebration does not have enough ventilators should the crisis escalate.
He said, “It is wrong to relax lockdown because of people going to church. Faith is a thing of the mind. You can worship without going to church.”
“We have a crisis that we don’t have the resources to manage. The greatest country in the world is America. They are on their knees now health wise and economically. We should not allow that because we cannot manage it.
“Lock up Nigeria and we will solve our problems from within.”
It should be recalled some state government had relaxed the lockdown to enable residents prepare for the Easter celebrations.
