The Rising Cases Of Coronavirus In Lagos And Abuja Is A Cause Of Worry – NUJ

Coronavirus NigeriaThe President of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Mr. Chris Isiguzo has begged the Federal Government to shut down non-essential activities to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus disease in Nigeria.

Chris revealed that it is presently a matter of topmost priority because, by so doing, we will be averting the impending doom in the country.

According to him, the fact that more cases are springing up in Lagos and the Federal Capital Territory is a clear cause of concern and only essential services like medical services, the Police, armed forces, fire services, telecommunications, the media, banks, selected markets, and the power sector should be allowed to function for now.

He added that Nigerians should take any advice from medical institutions seriously during this period while our government should emulate China, America and other European nations in acting fast to save the lives of the people.

His words, “This is necessary due to the fact that more cases are springing up in Lagos and the Federal Capital Territory.

“Only essential services like medical services, the Police, armed forces, fire services, telecommunications, the media, banks, selected markets, and the power sector should be allowed to operate in the meantime.

“We equally call on Nigerians to adhere strictly to advice from medical institutions, while governments at all levels should emulate China, America and other European countries taking urgent remedial measures to ensure that the people do not suffer untold hardships.

“This is the time to work together for the collective survival of the country because no one is safe if only one person gets infected.”
