- Lauds Borno Gov.’s leadership style on palliatives
President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria’s economy is too fragile for fresh COVID-19 lockdown.
The President, who stated this yesterday through his verified Twitter handle, said compliance with COVID-19 protocols by all Nigerians is crucial to avert a second wave of the pandemic in the country.
President Buhari therefore urged Nigerians to obey all protocols recommended by health authorities to curtail the spread of the lethal coronavirus.
“Looking at the trends in other countries, we must do all we can to avert a second wave of COVID-19 in Nigeria. We must make sure that our cases, which have gone down, do not rise again. Our economy is too fragile to bear another round of lockdown,” @MBuhari tweeted.
The Federal Government had in March imposed a total lockdown on parts of the country including Lagos, Abuja and Ogun. The lockdown lasted for over five weeks and had a tremendous effect on the country’s economic activities.
