BREAKING: Nigerian Economy Can’t Take Another Lockdown – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari warned that Nigeria’s economy is too unstable for a fresh coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown.

Infosive notes that the president said this in his Twitter post @MBuhari on Thursday.

Buhari argued that compliance with the COVID-19 protocols by all Nigerians is essential to averting the second wave of the country’s pandemic.

“Looking at the trends in other countries, we must do all we can to avert a second wave of COVID-19 in Nigeria.

“We must make sure that our cases, which have gone down, do not rise again. Our economy is too fragile to bear another round of lockdown,” Buhari wrote.

Recall that President Buhari had in March imposed a total lockdown which lasted over five weeks on parts of the country including Lagos, Abuja and Ogun to curb the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
