  • We are not resuming work, COVID-19 is real – Abuja residents

    Some Abuja residents expressed fear over today’s resumption of work amidst the increasing rate of infection from COVID-19 in the FCT.

    A resident of the FCT, John Onipe Salawu, said while the lockdown does not help the economy, relaxing it would not help the containment of the spread of COVID-19.

    He, however, noted that government was forced to relax the lockdown because it lacked capacity to meet the needs of the people.

    Salawu said: “It is a 50/50 kind of fear and hope. It is now a battle between the virus and hunger as both are pandemics.”

    Another resident of Abuja, Gideon Tivah, said uncertainty pervaded the air, add- ing that: “People don’t even know what to expect. You say government workers from Level 14 should go to work, what of others like those in the private sector where they don’t use grade levels?

    “There is so much confusion. Everything is in God’s hands. Nobody is doing anything other than to announce figures of confirmed cases everyday. As far as I am concerned, they have added to the confusion on ground by this so-called relaxation.”

    Chairman, Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations, Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees (AUPCTRE), National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM), Abuja, Comrade Adogah Abdullahi, described today’s resumption as akin to being caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.

    He said: “Today, without being pessimistic, the risk of contracting the deadly disease will be higher, notwithstanding the measures put in place.

    “Secondly, the economy is suffering and with the rate of poverty in our society, the average citizens cannot afford the pain so far.”

    Another resident, Mr Shola Idris, advised residents who could sustain themselves without going to work to continue staying at home.

    He said: “It is a dicey one for the country, for individuals and families, we are all at risk. I do understand that the government had no choice but to ease the lockdown, especially as the palliatives they were providing were not going- ing round. I will advise those people that can still sustain themselves to stay at home because this is actually a serious pandemic.”

    Mr Kelvin Ogar said: “There is no need to go out if there is no serious need. Moreover, the Federal Government is saying that it has to be a certain level of officials that can resume work so that the offices will not be congested. If it is not really very important, I think we just have to stay back at home.”

    Also, Glory Monday expressed fear over the continued spread of the virus, stressing that it would be counterproductive for the government to ease the lockdown.

    Another resident, Mrs Hannah Taiwo, insisted on staying at home, saying that: “I will not go out because ordinarily they ought to extend it. See the number of recorded cases. It is scary.”
