SGF Boss Mustapha says he's worried and forsees danger ahead as Nigerians continue to flout COVID-19 pandemic

'I never knew,' SGF shocked by poor state of Nigeria's healthcare system amid coronavirus response

Secretary to the Government of the Federation who is also the Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha disclosed that he is worried and forsees a danger ahead as the ease of the lockdown entered day three today.

This disclosure was made by the SGF at the press briefing of the taskforce in Abuja yesterday.

Mustapha says the outright disregard for all COVID-19 prevention guidelines only potent danger for Nigerians even as the battle against COVID19 continues.

In his words;

"Today I am a little bit sober because of the dangers that I see ahead and I referred to it in my speech.

"I said early assessment of the ease of lockdown phase, indicates that Nigerians are yet to come to terms with the deadliness and the virulent nature of COVID19 and this gives us concern on the high possibility of increased shedding of the virus to hitherto unaffected persons and populations.

"I went ahead to mention some of the worries. One of it is total disregard for the protocols that government has issued which includes social distancing, wearing of mask, personal hygiene, ban on inter state travels. We have just thrown them to the wind.

I concluded with a very subtle reminder that the overall assessment of compliance with the measures and the outcome of models we have developed, point in the direction of danger ahead." he said

He added that the only way the danger ahead can be averted is for everyone to have personal discipline, increased awareness and enforcement.

Recall that the one month lockdown by President Buhari was eased off on Monday May 4 and was largely characterised by outright disregard or all COVID19 prevention guidelines.
