The war against Coronavirus disease in the country seems not to yield rapid results as it’s expected by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
The Chairman of the Presidential Task Force, Boss Mustapha on Thursday said he would return Nigeria to another lockdown if he had the powers to do so.
Mustapha during the daily briefing said even though it would not be palatable to the ear, locking down Nigeria again will be the best option going by the rate citizens are flouting the guidelines order.
He said Nigerians are playing love with Covid-19, behaving as if the virus does not exist.
According him, “You want to hear the truth? If it were within my powers this is the time to lockdown.
“Lockdown might not be a popular thing but this is the time to lockdown because I can see the attitude of Tom and Jerry.
“I saw a real romance with Covid -19 today. Romance of people behaving as if the matter (virus) is over.
“It is a very serious issue and my appeal to Nigerians listening is that; let us take this thing (virus) serious.
“By now, with 500 plus fatalities you can’t be ignorant, you can’t say you don’t know of anybody that has fallen victim either by way of name or pictures but today they are no more.”
