It's well known that some months ago the Federal government had declared lockdown and interstate ban on citizens in order to ease the spread of Covid-19. Honesty, all citizens have waited patiently on the government to rule out the interstate ban. However, it is good to hear that the ban has been finally ruled out.

President Muhammadu Buhari who is the commander in chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces, made a broadcast on the democracy day approving the ease of lock down. Before then, president Muhammad Buhari in conjunction with the federal government has vested powers on the state governments to decide when to lift lockdown in their various states. For instance, restrictions on churches and mosques have been lifted by the federal government yet some states like Lagos didn't agree to the decision of federal government due to the persistence increase in the number of affected persons in their state.

looking at the persistence increase in number of affected covid-19 persons, there are possibilities for second total lockdown in Nigeria from next month July 2020.

Just yesterday, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, reported 649 new cases of covid-19 in Nigeria, bringing the country's total to 22,020.

noting like Covid19 in Nigeria, it Covid419 for our leaders to make money for themselves.

Why is it that every little lucrative opportunity to this government is always made to be everlasting bondage to the poor masses? Since they claim to have recorded over 22 thousand COVID -19 cases in Nigeria and they don't have corpses on the roads and streets or even at homes like Us, Italy, etc, why can't they allow Nigerians to manage their lives so with their God? Our God almighty is always our protector. Coronavirus is not meant for everybody, or every country to suffer long. This government should forget lock down, then lift ban on schools, Airlines and interstate transports for people to be released from the captivities.

Let's go on with the second total lockdown so far it involves every body including government officials. This time around,no exemption of anyone no matter who you are including doctors. This nonesense government should stop frightening the citizens with luckdown after all you have not achieved anything from the one earlier done. Government focused on the money they could make from citizens about the work involved. They will isolate people, no food, no medical care, no attention and finally the person will die and will be included in the numbers of cases and death and their money collected. My brother just died like that with out one medical attention, my name is very clear here, let they come and arrest me because I can never keep quiet in anything Nigeria or trust what ever any government is doing or saying, this is the country where lockdown is the only solution to coronavirus and other problems including hunger. Fools.
