Nigeria’s economy too weak for fresh lockdown —Buhari

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari, says Nigeria’s economy is excessively delicate for new COVID-19 lockdown.

The President, hence, encouraged Nigerians to comply with all conventions prescribed by wellbeing specialists to shorten the spread of the deadly Covid.

Buhari, who expressed this on Thursday through his confirmed Twitter handle, said consistence with COVID-19 conventions by all Nigerians is critical to turn away a second flood of the pandemic in the nation.

Taking a gander at the patterns in different nations, we should do everything we can to deflect a second rush of COVID-19 in Nigeria.

“We should ensure that our cases, which have gone down, don’t rise once more. Our economy is too delicate to even think about bearing another round of lockdown,” @MBuhari tweeted.

Buhari 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 economical activities with the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry putting the loss at about N3bn in the period under review.

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 had at its many briefings frowned on the disregard for COVID-19 protocol by Nigerians while warning against a second wave of the virus in the country.

The task force had also urged citizens to obey social distancing rules, use masks, and regularly wash hands, amongst others.

According to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, the country has recorded over 62,000 infections including over 1,100 fatalities.
