Coronavirus: Festus Keyamo Kicked Against Another Total Lockdown In Nigeria

The Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has kicked against another nationwide lockdown in Nigeria despite the continuous rise in the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19.

President Muhammadu Buhari had in a nationwide broadcast eased the lockdown and imposed curfew in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun States.

However, there have been a spike in cases in most states, especially Lagos in the past few days.

As of Saturday night, Nigeria recorded another 238 cases bringing the total number of COVID-19 cases to 4151.

Recall that Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu had threatened to lock down the state as he lamented non-compliance of residents to health guidelines.

Speaking on the development, Keyamo said another total lockdown would be counter-productive.

According to him, Nigerians need to discipline themselves to defeat the virus while going about their daily activities.

He added that practicing the safety skills to defeat COVID-19 cannot be perfected if another lockdown is effected.
