Lagos Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared the state may extend the ongoing 14-day lockdown.
He said this during a media briefing on Saturday.
Without being told, we are all aware of the daily increase of Victims in Nigeria,and with the fact that Lagos State is taking the lead on that aspect.
It would be a nice and a sensible move if the lockdown is extended.
Report just reaching now is that the Governor is looking at extending the lockdown.
He said the lockdown would be extended depending on the situation of things, adding that the number of patients discharged in Lagos had risen to 24.
The Nation reports almost 50 percent of the 209 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Nigeria are recorded in Lagos.
He said: “If there’s a need to extend the lockdown, I will. We got one discharged patient today (recovered from the coronavirus). We are going to sit down with the committee that is working on the community markets and see if we can announce more next week.”
On alleged assault of residents by enforcement agents, Sanwo-Olu said, “There’s been no backlash on the handling of people by the security operatives so far. I always tell them to ‘wear a human face’.”
If it would be done,the Government should also look at providing more for the residents in the state.
More Details shortly…
