Notes from Hindustan: Nigeria’s lockdown policy failed

Often times, the problem with emulating people is the failure to realise your own strengths and weaknesses. The Aftermath of this lockdown is creating more problems rather than possible solutions.

Nigeria’s adaptation of lockdown policy to contain the spread of COVID-19 is pretentiously a solution to reduce the spread of the virus  while apparently, it is literally another way of reimposing hardships, difficulties, sufferings and giving hunger and starvation a room to take away the lives of the poor citizens. Alas!

Worriedly, it is time for the government to understand the plight of its citizens, and do the needful by providing alternatives to help them survive the dreadful danger of hunger while at same time fighting the COVID-19.
