We Must Fight Coronavirus Like Our Lives Depend On It – APC

All Progressives Congress (APC)The All Progressives Congress has come out to say that they are joining Christians in the celebration of Easter amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The APC, National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, recently said that he acknowledges and appreciates the redemptive blessings of the ultimate love, sufferings and sacrifices of Jesus Christ for the common good of mankind.

According to him, during this unusual period, our personal and collective responsibility are required more than before for every Nigerian to be safe.

He added that the World Health Organisation Director-General, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was right when he said that we all must fight the Coronavirus like our lives depend on it because it actually does depend on it.

His words, “Indeed, Easter emphasises, acknowledges and appreciates the redemptive blessings of the ultimate love, sufferings and sacrifices of Jesus Christ for the common good of mankind.”

“A devastating public health crisis that has affected and disrupted every sector is upon us– every sector and individual must therefore be involved in the fight against the Coronavirus. So as we commemorate Easter with family and loved ones, we must understand that these are unusual times and our personal and collective responsibility are required more than before to stay safe. To achieve this, we must continue to adhere to directives on social distancing and other public health protocols aimed at containing the pandemic.

“As Nigeria complements global efforts to contain further spread of the Coronavirus, the APC reiterates the charge by the World Health Organisation Director-General, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus while addressing the March 2020 Extraordinary Summit on COVID-19, that we must fight the Coronavirus like our lives depend on it, because they do; unite, because we will only get out of the pandemic together and ignite a global movement to ensure this never happens again.

“Commendably, government continues to implement palliatives for the Nigerian citizenry, particularly those on the margins. We encourage able individuals and organisations to continue and expand their philanthropic outreach to the elderly, poor and other vulnerable people in our societies.”
