Continue to stay at home, Buhari tells Nigerians

President Buhari has urged Nigerians to comply with the restrictions in order to defeat the coronavirus while promising more interventions for vulnerable citizens.

The lockdown order of the President in Lagos and Ogun State, as well as the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, enters day 13 today.

President Buhari in a statement by his spokesperson, Garba Shehu, on Saturday, expressed appreciation to all Nigerians for their patience, resolve and determination to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic.

Buhari entreated Nigerians not to waiver in complying with the lockdown order which aims at allowing citizens to observe social distancing to break the cycle of transmission of the novel virus.

He asked Nigerians “to observe restrictions on movement where they are in place, and follow the instructions of our scientists and medical advisers: stay home, wash your hands, save lives.

“All that the government is asking you to endure is because there is no known way of defeating this pandemic (yet). There is no vaccine. And that means there are choices to be made…We cannot expect others to come to our assistance. No one is coming to defeat this virus for us…We cannot wait for others. We can only depend on ourselves. And so we must — and we will — end this outbreak ourselves as Nigerians, together.”
