The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has advised all residents of Lagos and Nigerians in general to obey government’s directives and measures put in place to curtail the spread of Coronavirus, COVID-19.
Addressing newsmen at the Lagos House Marina after meeting with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu behind closed doors along with some other top leaders of the APC, Asiwaju Tinubu, who said he was in support of any decision taken by the government, including a total lockdown, if necessary, to halt the spread of the virus, encouraged Nigerians to do the same.
Tinubu urged Nigerians to embrace all precautionary measures including regularly washing of hands with soaps or sanitizers, social distancing and non-shaking of hands, even though he admitted that such is a new culture alien to the people.
So far, Lagos has the highest number of confirmed Coronavirus cases in the country.
The state government had earlier implemented some measures, including social distancing and directing a category of it’s workers to work from home.
Governor Sanwo-Olu is currently in a meeting with some members of his cabinet and other key stakeholders on the next step to take to halt the spread of Covid-19.
