Fmr Gov warns Nigeria may die if lockdown is extended


Former Governor of Anambra State, Chukwueme­ka Ezeife, has cautioned the Federal Government about extending the lockdown as it would mean many Nigerians dying of hunger.

“If there should be an­other extension, Nigerians would die. The truth is that people are tired.

People would die as a result of riot that is the fact. If you consid­er what has been happening across the country, Lagos and Ogun states in particu­lar, where gang robbery has become the order of the day, you will agree that a com­plete lockdown will not be advisable,” he said.

Ezeife said that if the lockdown extension is being considered, some sectors have to be left opened for the coronavirus fight to be successful.
