As part of attempts to limit the spread of Covid-19, governments have instituted lock-down measures and banned public gatherings. Lagos, Africa’s largest city with 21 million people, is attemptin to do the same. With 11 confirmed cases, by far the most in Nigeria, the state government has asked schools to shut down and banned public gatherings of more than 50 people, particularly religious congregations
Mr. Adewale Samson has air his opinion about the new development of the lock-down of public places in Nigeria.
This pandemic circumstance on the world is a genuine trial of readiness of nations on the planet against unforeseen conditions.
Italy, Spain, and so forth are on a Lockdown as measure to stop the spread of the COVID-19.
With the lockdown, organizations resort to working from homes, nourishments are conveyed to individuals at homes, consistent power to keep them occupied, clinical consideration are given to individuals at home, and so on. My inquiry is that in the event that we are to end up in a similar circumstance (God Forbid!) would we be able to bear the cost of a lockdown?
A Lockdown in Nigeria will mean no entrance to power since you can’t purchase fuel
It will mean more fire flare-ups as a result of individuals who will race to proceed to purchase powers which could prompt fire out breaks
It will mean numerous individuals will be completely cut off from the world on the grounds that without power and fuels, telephones would be dead and correspondence turns into an issue. It would mean appetite as a result of failure to go to market to purchase nourishments once the little you have finished

It will mean expanded neediness due to individuals who rely upon every day wages to simply eat. Individuals like easy-going specialists, cab drivers, Okada, and so on who must work every day for them to eat. The most exceedingly terrible right now the poor people
It would mean loss of salary and benefits for organizations since working from in Nigeria is being referred to?
It would imply that numerous individuals might be constrained bankrupt. Systematic Frozen chicken venders, who need day by day light to capacity, will have their merchandise decimated on account of no power.
Unemployment and destitution would expand as a result of the abovementioned
It may likewise assist with diminishing weaknesses however the circumstance in the. North, where individuals are visited by criminals in their homes make it hard to finish up on that.
It might resolve in numerous passing since individuals with wellbeing conditions who must utilize their medications would not approach it.
For sure, the rundown proceeds. The most noticeably terrible is that can the nation bear the cost of bailouts of organizations like it’s done abroad? I was told UNITED STATE OF AMERIACA is going to give out about $1000 dollars to citizens because of COVID-19 Locked down, can we afford to give our own Citizens N90, 000. (Ninety thousand naira) to easy them out of this difficulty period? This is another test. Re-Awaken initiative of Nigeria is expressing her gratitude toward God for the measures put in place by the CBN. The Big Question is how enough would that be able to be? This nation has been organized such that it can’t hold up under such difficulties.
In the event that there is anything our Leaders should take from this rate, it’s the need to reposition the nation for the better future. There is the requirement for a reconsider about the nation’s financial structure.
It is High time we all turn to God for Help, as for those we look up to in case of unforeseen circumstance are also looking for Help too. So God is the Ultimate from time memorial he never changes if only we can humble ourselves and jointly set a day aside in our individual homes around 2am and ask for forgiveness. Am just thinking ooh! Prince Adewale Samson Re-Awaken initiative of Nigeria (RAIN)
