SPORTCoronavirus: NFF suspends all football activities

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced the cancellation of all forms of football activities in the country for the next four weeks.

NFF Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire, in a statement on Wednesday, disclosed that the shutdown was “as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic’’.

He said the shutdown affected all on-field activities involving the various national teams, the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), the other leagues, youth football programmes and “even street football’’.

He quoted the NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, as saying “the cessation will be for four weeks, after which the situation will be reviewed in line with events and trends worldwide.

“They should observe the precautions as advised by the Federal Ministry of Health and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), such as hand-washing, the use of sanitisers and social distancing.’’

Pinnick was further quoted as saying the only football activity that would be permitted was the work of the NFF investigation committee into the death of Chineme Martins.

Hmmm... markets will join soon. I heard of panic buying in some parts of Lagos.

The scariest thing about this coronavirus is that there is no hope of vaccines anytime soon! With the reality of coronavirus now staring us in the face, businesses, markets, etc will shutdown.

For those that have hope to survive it, here are some of the rewarding things to do at this time:

Buhari defaulted in doing the basic things that ought to be done in order to avert this panick. He left the border open for infected persons to come 'seek cure' in Nigeria after they allegedly 'cured' the infected Italian. I hope the the virus gets to him. Fine if he survives it. Still fine if he decides to go with the virus.

The only remedy is going back to God
Man has failed God
This whole thing looks like God has moved away from man.
Man is too carried away by the things of the world.
This may be a sign that Jesus is coming
Everything the Bible said is coming to reality.
May God help us
