Lagos Traders Lament Market Closure, Appeal To Sanwo-Olu For Palliatives by nairavsdollars(f): 7:39pm On Mar 26
Some traders in Lagos have been counting their losses following the partial closure of markets by the Lagos State government as part of measures to curtail the spread of the ravaging Coronavirus pandemic.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had on Tuesday ordered the closure of all markets in the state except those selling essential commodities such as foodstuff, water, medical supplies, amongst others.

The governor also announced that the compliance of the directive will be fully enforced by all security operatives.

Our correspondent who went round observed total compliance with the directives. It was also observed that traders selling foodstuffs were carrying out their activities without disturbance by security operatives.

Speaking with Daily Independent on Thursday, Ikechukwu Ejimonu, a spare parts seller at First Gate, Agidingbi Ikeja said though they came to shop, they couldn’t open because of the fear of arrests by security agents.

According to him, there is no way he could survive because he and his family survives on the daily gains he makes from selling vehicle spare parts.

“This is just day one and we are already feeling the heat of the closure. What will now happen to us if we close the shops for 14 days?”

“ We appreciate what the governor has done in protecting our lives against the virus but if we don’t eat we shall equally die of hunger. I have nothing in my account to even stockpile foods at home because this is a daily business and I survive on gains I make daily”.

“ We will appreciate some support in terms of palliatives from the governor. We have association leaders here. They all have our registers. The state government can reach us through them. We can’t continue like this or else we will die of hunger” he said.

Also speaking, Mrs. Bolanle Awojori, a trader in children’s wears at Ogba also said she is already feeling the impact of the closure.
“ Honestly, I must commend Governor Sanwo-Olu for what he has done so far but I will appreciate some palliatives to cushion the pain of the closure”.

“Also, I don’t think the order on a full closure is good enough. If they can allow us to trade for at least 2-3 hours a day, that will be fine. I survive on daily sales and now if I close shop for two weeks, how will I survive? ” she asked.

Chinese authorities have been sued for $20 trillion over the spread of coronavirus which has caused the death of many and also halted activities in different countries around the world.
The Chinese government, Chinese army, the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Director of Wuhan Institute of Virology Shi Zhengli and Chinese army’s Major General Chen Wei, were joined as defendants in the lawsuit filed by Freedom Watch, an advocacy group with members in all major Countries of the World, led by American lawyer Larry Klayman.

The plaintiffs who sought for $20 trillion as damages against the Chinese government over the outbreak of coronavirus which they claimed is a biological weapon prepared by the Chinese authorities, accused China of aiding and abetting death, provision of material support to terrorists, conspiracy to cause injury and death of US citizens, negligence, wrongful death, assault and battery. The American group which cited multiple media reports that said that there was only one microbiology lab in China that handled advanced viruses like the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, also accused Chinese authorities of trying to cover up the crime by linking statements on coronavirus with national security protocols.

It was also alleged that Chinese authorities “silenced” Chinese doctors and researchers who spoke out about coronavirus and “raised the alarm to the outside world internationally”. The group also disclosed that Major General Chen who desperately wanted to save herself from the virus, reportedly injected herself and six members of her team with a potential vaccine that was yet to be tested. The American plaintiffs who asked for a jury trial against the Chinese defendants, insisted that coronavirus was “designed to be used against the general population of one or more of China’s perceived enemy nations, such as the United States.”

The COVID-19 originated in the Hubei province in China in December 2019. The country, however, claims to have defeated the virus entirely, with Wuhan, the worst-affected city, announcing plans to lift the lockdown. The virus, so far, has infected more than 334,000 people and killed more than 14,500, as per data by the World Health Organisation.
