  • Nigerians fear community transmission

    Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus in the House of Representatives expressed displeasure over President Buhari’s decision to relax the lockdown order in Lagos, Ogun and the FCT.

    The caucus, in a statement signed by its leader, Honourable Kingsley Chinda, express concern that the Federal Government was more concerned about the health of the economy than the life of Nigerians, while calling for a reversal of the lifting on the lockdown.

    Chairman of the defunct United Progressives Party (UPP), Chief Chekwas Okorie, noted that President Buhari was pressured to relax the lockdown, warning Nigerians to be wary of the likelihood of an explosion of community transmission of the deadly scourge.

    Executive Director of Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), Auwal Ibrahim Musa Rasfajani, warned Nigerians to adhere to the precautionary measures, else they fall victim to the virus.

    He said: “I expected a study to show evidence of lockdown reducing the spread or otherwise. So far there is no scientific and medical studies in Nigeria justifying the removal of the lockdown.”

    An estate valuer, Mr Olayiwola Alonge, advised government to be serious about inter-state travels, to contain the spread of the virus in the country.

    He urged the federal and state governments to show more commitment to fighting the disease by sensitising and educating people in rural areas to prevent a community transmission.

    A resident of Ogun State, Mr Wale Adenaya, expressed shock over the call for resumption to duties in Ogun and Lagos states, adding that: “We have by ourselves opened the floodgates of a more calamitous situation which the Coronavirus will likely visit upon us.”

    Another resident of Ogun State, Mr Wale Junaid, said the relaxation of lockdown and resumption of workers is a dangerous gamble.

    He said: “It is illogical in the sense that the number of COVID-19 casualties is on the increase and we are now encouraging people to go out. Possibility of infection of COVID-19 is expectedly going to be higher in view of the un- popular decision of the government. Stress of lockdown may be high but the danger of easing down the lockdown at this time is higher and more grievous.”
