Reopening the borders is long overdue. Locking down the country indefinitely is not the solution. Government should put measures and enforce them to ensure that road transportation is not impeded while safety isn't compromised. Transporters should operate from designated parks only where health officials will be available to test passengers whose number should not exceed the limit for the vehicle type. There should be no picking of passengers along interstate routes. Travellers in private cars must adhere to the protocols.

I have for long stopped referring Nigeria to as Giant of Africa. I even placed little Togo ahead bcoz the country in midst of thousands of professors are still analogue in their sense of reasonings. You locked up poor people and their businesses at home and be crying about poor economy. Visit borders and see how much security agents make in a day. Lawless country that doesn't think about positive growth. Not until people lose patience and take to the streets and then there will no longer be control over the spread of your acclaimed COVID 19

Interstate movement should be lifted.Enough of these wickedness. For near to 5 months ppl have been lockdown without any help from this government is just wickedness. If interstate is not lifted this week that means this government is looking to sarcrify the bloods of nigeria citizens to the number of deaths of this covid 19 as there may be massive and spontaneous uprising by nigerians.
