Corona Virus has posed a serious tension to.the world and every nation is putting their heads together to get a remedy for this monster both government and the people.
But in Africa and Nigeria Government is trying their little bits but the people are the greatest sabotage of government efforts, every Nigerian is an opputunist, always using a critical situation to enrich himself/herself.
But we should know that this Covid-19 is not smiling at all and even the world powers has shut down because of it,and this is a danger signal to underdeveloped countries and world at large but the question on my lips now to Nigerians is how prepared are we to fight this disease?
everything has skyrocketed in the markets, foods stuffs, beverages, phones, drugs etc and why should it be so when other countries are bringing down prices of commodities but we are increasing by ourselves not GOVERNMENT this time.
What about the social distance of a thing , people don’t care about it and even many don’t even know what is happening not to talk of what to do. I visited a bank yesterday and I wept.
At the banks people are forced to hugs and exchange sweat in the name of keeping and maintaining five man at a time, while other hundreds of people are suffocating themselves in a small space waiting for their turn to be checked before going in?
What of the transport sectors hope we have told the owners of the buses to have patience with the drivers until this issues is resolved because they must make account if they must remain in business. Can government bring out good luxurious buses to carry people free or less amount to maint social distance?
What about the landlords and rent? Hope they will give their tenants time to pay?
What about the fuel stations? All fuel stations along Ana road In Owerri has closed down including the ones owned by traditional rulers and government officials yet we blame government in everything. Because government reduced pump prince to #125 all of them automatically shut down waiting for a new directive on additional money so they can start to sell. But if it were to be increment they will reduce their metres and still sell on the new pump price, government please look into that and withdraw licence of every dealer who shut down or refused to sell fuel at the new pump price or those who reduced their metres and prosecute them. They are the worst Corona Virus (Covid-66).
What about those Selling SANITISER ? they have increased the price by 45% and even those selling detergents and nose mask. Government should make these things available to the public free of charge and regulate the market for this period of time that is one of the benefits of having functional government in such situation.
So as you plan to shut down your state what’s your plan for your people Mr. Governor.
There is a lot to do both the government and the people.
