Buhari Urges Precaution, Not Fear Of Coronavirus Cases by murecool(m): 11:01pm On Mar 19
*STATE HOUSE PRESS RELEASE: PRESIDENT BUHARI URGES PRECAUTION, NOT FEAR ON CORONAVIRUS CASES*

Nigeria, like every other country around the world, is dealing with the unexpected and unprecedented impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Muhammadu Buhari administration has taken some steps to mitigate the effects on the Nigerian people.

To prevent the spread of cases imported into Nigeria, the President has already ordered the restrictions of travel from 13 countries, each with more than 1,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19. Government has also suspended visas issued to nationals of these countries. The restriction will take effect from March 21 and will remain until further notice. While Nigeria delights in welcoming the world, the safety and protection of our citizens and land must take priority.

The various agencies of government including Media owned by the government have embarked on vigorous campaigns promoting hygiene measures. There are, currently, very stringent regimes of checks at the points of air and sea entry into the country. The effort Nigeria is making as is well known, has already received the commendation of the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The Presidency wishes to assure Nigerians that government is on top of the situation. There is no cause for panic. So far measures put in place are working efficiently. What this country is doing has been recommended as a template.

The President trusts the relevant Ministers in his cabinet and the officials of the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), who are providing him with constant updates and professional counsel. These officials have a track record of competence.

The President instructed the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to reduce the pump price of fuel. The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a crash in the global price of crude oil, and the President decided that every Nigerian should benefit from this.

Subsequently, the NNPC announced a 20 naira deduction, and the pump price of fuel has now been reduced from 145 naira per litre to 125 naira per litre.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Monday announced a credit relief of N1.1Trillion Naira to businesses affected by the pandemic. The Bank has also established a facility for household, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and announced a reduction of interest rates for loans from 9% to 5%.

We do not want to create panic. But we will continue to update the Nigerian public with relevant information. We plead with every Nigerian to cooperate with the government in the fight against Covid-19 and obey all instructions from the NCDC. We have a high level Presidential Coordination Committee chaired by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF). This body should be allowed to carry out its duties.

We also plead with Nigerians not to see this most peculiar of times as one to be politicised or seen as an opportunity to regurgitate grudges against the government or the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). North, South, East, and West – all Nigerians must unite to fight this plague, irrespective of religious or ideological affiliation.

In this regard, populist advocacies such as the one accusing the President of “complacency” simply because he has not made a television address by ranking members of our respected parliament are cheap and sensational. These are not the times for populism and cheap politics.

President Buhari thanks all those at the forefront of the fight against the deadly disease.

A very Important Question about Coronavirus: Will Covid-19 be considered a pandemic in two years from now?

Answer : That depends on us.
Please, if you have a cough and/or a fever, stay at home and stay away from others.
You probably have a cold, but if you’re a minimally symptomatic carrier, you can do your part by making sure your particular Covid-19 ends at you and doesn’t get passed on to another person.
We pray that will never be anyone's portion.

The various agencies of government including Media owned by the government have embarked on vigorous campaigns promoting hygiene measures. There are, currently, very stringent regimes of checks at the points of air and sea entry into the country. The effort Nigeria is making as is well known, has already received the commendation of the World Health Organisation (WHO).
May this evil virus never be our portion and the portion of our family members.
You are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, If you believe.
God save Nigeria and Nigerians.

We do not want to create panic. But we will continue to update the Nigerian public with relevant information. We plead with every Nigerian to cooperate with the government in the fight against Covid-19 and obey all instructions from the NCDC
Sensible Nigerians who value their lives and the lives of their loved ones will comply to this, even without being told.
Simple sturvs!


To prevent the spread of cases imported into Nigeria, the President has already ordered the restrictions of travel from 13 countries, each with more than 1,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19. 
“I want to assure you that there’s no virus that’ll come near you at all because it is written that he who dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the almighty.....
CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS.
Wash your hands, make your surrounding clean........Pastor Adeboye.


We also plead with Nigerians not to see this most peculiar of times as one to be politicised or seen as an opportunity to regurgitate grudges against the government or the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). North, South, East, and West – all Nigerians must unite to fight this plague, irrespective of religious or ideological affiliation.
This is very very important.
This is the time for us all to come together as a nation.
We must unite as one to overcome this virus.
We can all start by CLEANLINESS,
Washing our hands, and keeping our immediate environment clean and safe.

Buhari is too shady for an old man

His silence on Oshiomhole vs Obaseki's matters almost brought APC on its kneel yet he was very quick to televise a warning to useless ipob on them crossing national redline

Now he had to keep our borders open till the last of his daughter flew in from UK and self isolated herself, there by allowing atleast several suspected cases into the country because of miss photographer daughter of his who uses DSS to retrieve simcards

when Toyota had defects on its landcruiser and lexus brands or when RollsRoyce had software issues with their elcrronic system and needed a recall, CEO of the companies came out to press, stood before investors, customers and the people to explain their policy guidline on the issue at hand, and promissed to do everything within its power to rectify the problem and compensate customers

President of countries affected even islamic Iran have being giving press briefing directly so as to commuinicate strategy deviced and how the economy would recover, but in Nigeria Buhari would rather keep quite like a mute, while the Minister of State for Health would Tell us borders wont be closed, 24 hours later Minister of Interior would tell us another thing that borders are closing by saturday, The Minister of health would tell us schools wont be shut only few days later minister of Education would annouce clossure of all schools, and since the President isnt talking, PDP clout chaser like Audio Governor Makinde would capitalise on that to hold a Mega PDP rally in the heart of city like Ibadan

Anyways na him know, the virus is dealing with old farts like him, people of 60s to 70s with low immuinity
