There Is Danger Ahead – FG Tells Nigerians After Three Days Of Lockdown Ease

The Federal Government of Nigeria has stated its displeasure, over the constant disregard of the lifting of the lockdown by Nigerians all across the country.

The Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha said this spells danger for Nigeria during his briefing on Wednesday, May 6, 2020.

“The overall assessment of compliance with the measures and outcomes of modelling we have developed, point in the direction of danger ahead. We therefore need personal discipline, increased awareness and enforcement” he said according to the Daily Post.

Mustapha further said “I want to reiterate the fact that our individual and collective safety is in our hands and I re-echo my call and appeal to Nigerians to demonstrate our duty to ourselves and loved ones by minimizing the risk of getting infected by the virus.”
On Monday, May 4, 2020, the phased and gradual easing of the lockdown commenced in Lagos, Abuja and Ogun. A few hours later, several photos of Lagosians crammed at bus stops and bank entrances went viral on social media.
These disturbing photos and videos which showed people not adhering to social distancing led the NCDC to state that another lockdown might be on the way.
