While speaking Boss Mustapha appealed to Nigerians to take personal responsibility in preventing the spread of coronavirus. Added that all should strict adherence to the guidelines issued for the second phase of the eased lockdown, as part of efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I don’t know your experiences out there, but I can tell you that it is one thing that has totally disrupted and distorted our social life. I leave my house every day and I return in the evening. I’m treated as a suspect. I have to wash my hands; I have to decontaminate my shoes; I have to walk into my house and barely will I be sitting down, my wife will ask me, ‘have you bathed?’ I will say, ‘I just arrived.
I don’t know what your experiences are, but that’s the level of disruption the COVID-19 has brought into our homes and into our lives and it is the way we respond to it that will determine whether we’ll win this war.”
