Osun State Government Suspends Weekly Markets by oshozondii: 5:41pm On Mar 24
The Osun State Government has suspended weekly markets indefinitely to curb the spread of coronavirus in the State.

The Chief Press Secretary to Osun State governor, Mr. Ismail Omipidan in a statement on Tuesday, said the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Rafiu Isamotu announced to market women on Tuesday that weekly markets activities have been shut down indefinitely.

However, he noted that the government allow daily market because it only attracts low patronage, unlike the weekly market.

Dr Isamotu stated that the lockdown was necessary due to the fact that Osun has boundaries with some States that have cases of the COVID-19 adding that people from neighbouring States patronise the weekly markets, which he said, makes Osun open to disease.

The Commissioner, therefore, urged the market women to support government’s effort in containing the spread of the disease by putting up hand-washing points and providing sanitizers for everyone who patronises them.

He also warned people against loitering at markets, urging them to leave immediately after performing their transactions.

I think is high time to place South-West on complete or partial lockdown.
Shutting Lagos will surely bring the Nigerian Economy into standstill but people need to be alive in order to care about the state of the Economy

This issue is getting serious than expected. Total lockdown is still the best option . I support such a gesture and I hereby propose that other state governments should adopt this strategy to supplement the existing #StayHome efforts...

The winter is here already!!

If they had closed the border, It wouldn't be this bad.
Funny enough, they are falling victims themselves.

Anyways.

This is now becoming worrisome.
Anyway, all preventive measures must continue to be put in place & strictly adhered to in the best interest of everyone.
Together, we shall all overcome it.

Good day dear Nairalanders. First of all I pray that these common enemy we are all fighting would never win. May God in heaven give us victory and protect us all. I don't know about any other part of NIGERIA but here in Abuja it's tense and people are panicking.
The reason I am writing these is to asked for your help Guys. I was jobless for months and got this job late last month and began this month and today my boss has told us not to come to work for at least 21 days and I have used virtually all my savings for transport and we weren't paid today till we get back in 3 weeks time. I stay at suleja and go to bannex each day and have done that for almost 3 weeks now at the rate of almost 900 per day and right now I am left with less than 3k. Now I need to stuck the house with food and while coming back from work I branch the market and guy's my 3000 couldn't get me anything. It couldn't even get anything that would last a week and I don't have anyone to call to asked for help than strangers that don't know me. Now I'm not gonna come here and lie and say lies for help but plead with you all as friends to please assist me and not just me but other's around you as well. My boss told us that before Sunday there would be a nation wide lockdown so therefore please there are people around you that might not have enough please if God put it in your heart's please help them no matter how small. Buy them rice and beans and garri and if you are a boss here please especially in ABUJA let your workers go on a break and before you give a break please try and pay them because many of us don't have another source . This might come as a scam or a lie to extort people but it's not and even tho you can't help me please just say a prayer for NIGERIA our country and help someone when the lockdown begins and asked anyone that stays around suleja, a lockdown has began tomorrow for us here. 0230996969. GTB Bank. God bless you and God save NIGERIA

With the menace of coronavirus the internet and other technological entrepreneurs will cashout immensely, lots of people are online now, mtn, Glo, Airtel, will witness increase in data consumption, hypo and other sanitizer companies are already cashing out heavily, fait money would soon be ruled out and the new era of cryptocurrencies would be adopted as a means of payment world wide.

In summary this covid 19 is already serving as a blessing to some group of entrepreneurs.

Please let's stay safe and invest wisely.
