President Muhammadu Buhari, has said that Nigeria’s economy is too fragile to bear another round of fresh COVID-19 lockdown.
The President disclosed this via his verified Twitter handle on Thursday.
Buhari said, compliance with COVID-19 protocols by all Nigerians, is crucial to avert a second wave of the pandemic in the country.
“Looking at the trends in the other countries, we must do all we can to avert a second wave of Covid-19 in Nigeria. We must make sure that our cases, which have gone down, do not rise again. Our economy is too fragile to bear another round of lockdown,” he tweeted.
He therefore, urged Nigerians to obey all protocols recommended by health authorities to curtail the spread of the lethal coronavirus.
It will be recalled that Buhari had in March imposed total lockdown on parts of the country including Lagos, Abuja and Ogun which lasted for over five weeks.
