    Did Nigerian doctors have enough protective equipment for this virus.
    Don’t let it be the situation where those that supposed to treat the infected patients become the source of the virus.

    Am not talking about the governor’s own but saying this generally.

    The epicentre of the covid-19 was from China. And today it becomes a reality in Nigeria. The pandemic disease in Nigeria begins with an Italian man and letter hook up with others, including top political stake holders, chief of staff Abba Kyari and Gov Bala Mohammed were tested positive. This is serious crisis against the socioeconomic and the political aspect. Nigerians can’t sit back relax and watch the government working on it a lone. NGOs have a role to play and a group of individuals as well, need to rise up and take a preventive measures. For those who are affected, I wish them quick recovery, and Rest In Peace to the soul of the two Nigerians who pass away. Amen.
