Suleiman Achimugu Is Dead! Coronavirus Kills Ex-MD Of PPMC by Pogba12: 11:09am On Mar 23
Former Managing Director of Pipelines and Products Marketing Company, a subsidiary of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Suleiman Achimugu, has died of Coronavirus.

Achimugu, who returned to Nigeria from the United Kingdom two weeks ago, started showing symptoms of the virus last Tuesday, according to findings by SaharaReporters.

He eventually died around 2:00am on Monday after coughing severely for most part of Sunday.

A family source told SaharaReporters that officials of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control were informed of his situation and even took his blood sample for testing but they never got back to his family until he died overnight.

His blood sample tested positive for the virus.

“NCDC officials came to the house and took his blood specimen. Even though it tested positive, they never got back to us until he died at a hospital in Gwagwalada.

“We are all currently under quarantine in the house,” a family source told SaharaReporters on Monday.

It was also gathered that the NCDC will handle Achimugu’s burial so as to avoid a further spread of the virus.

Earlier on Monday, the NCDC announced that Nigeria now had a total number of 35 confirmed cases of Coronavirus.

I hope everyone takes this virus seriously. The U.S. was sleeping on the virus now NewYork alone has more than 15,000 cases.
As at Monday last week, total infected cases was 182,723 with 7,194 deaths. This Monday the number has almost doubled to 343,818 cases with 14,923 deaths.

Be cautious. Stay safe.

Nigeria had a buffer period few countries had. After our first case (the Italian), we had almost two weeks in which no other case was recorded. That was our buffer period. Also, within this period, the virus had fortunately taken a definite pattern, the global hotspots had already been revealed—China, Italy, Iran, Spain, UK, US and co. These were advantages very few countries had in this war against Covid-19, which any compos mentis nation would grab with both arms. But, alas, this is Nigeria.

We left our entry points open. Even Atiku pleaded on Twitter that our airports should be shut down. Some ignorant folks had already started commending this equally ignorant government.

Unfortunately, we recorded another case. Then another. And then another. Boom! 95% of our confirmed cases were of people who came in from THE HOSTSPOTS at a time this virus was raging!

Now, pray tell, has God not helped us enough, with all the advantages we had?

How the hell did the late Achimugu fly in FROM A HOTSPOT and didn't get quarantined!

This is almost a hopeless country. The leadership and followership are cold dead!

P.S.: To those who would say "you cannot just shut the airports down that way", I'd drop these posers:
- At a time the world was progressively shutting down, what could we have lost by shutting our doors?
- Yea, citizens have the right of ingress. But we could still shut our doors and allow citizens to come in but on the condition that they would surrender to a 15-day quarantine.
- What have we gained, aside joining the global Covid-19 map, from leaving our doors open?
- In a world where America is setting up a $1Tn package, Spain a $200bn package, and other countries having to appropriate billions of dollars in economic and social interventions, can the gains of leaving our doors open be compared to the cost we will bear for that decision? Our annual budget is just about $40bn, just to set a perspective.

You all are not ready.

US has approved Chloroquine. Abeg, what are we waiting for? Can't our medical experts centre on that chloroquine and come up with something? Must they start their own research from the scratch.

Abeg, they better do something before this gets to an epidemic proportion.
