Coronavirus: Ogun State To Stop Non-Essential Inter-State Movement From Monday by austin4real(m): 9:05pm On Mar 28, 2020
I have directed that all interstate and international borders be closed, effective from 12 Midnight tomorrow, Sunday, 29th March, 2020
https://twitter.com/dabiodunMFR/status/1243989925051224064?s=19

This directive which affects the border shared with the Republic of Benin and translates to a ban on inbound and outbound movements altogether, excludes vehicles conveying personnel offering essential services in health, security and food.

This restriction is a step further to reduce the importation of the COVID-19 into the State from neighbouring states and countr[/b]y, including all states in the southwest, [b]especially Lagos which is understandably the epicentre of the pandemic in the country, being a host....

I urge everyone to understand that during this time of the virus outbreak, stringent measures have to be taken, as we continue to review them regularly as the situation, which is expected to get better, requires. #COVID19 #BuildingOurFutureTogether

Ogun governor is even closing international borders ?
Lol ... this Buhari is a shithole, I swear.

When we tell zombies that Abba Kyari is the de facto president of Nigeria and that Buhari is just a piece of Mannequin decorating
the Villa, they argue.

Since Kyari was quarantined for Covid 19, nothing seems to be happening in the villa again. No one is giving orders.
Buhari is senile, lifeless and only used in the Villa for photoshoot.

Every governor is now a president and commander-in-Chief of his state.

This is stupid. I hope it doesn't affect Nairaland. The #ShutDownNigeria people don't have a very deep understanding of how an economy works. The vast majority of business activities in a developing country like Nigeria are essential. Very few people going to Lagos just for fun. Our leaders think that shutting things down is a viable alternative to massive testing and isolation of those who test positive, and we are cheering them on. There is no quick fix to the Coronavirus. There is no alternative to massive testing, isolation and contact tracing. We have to use our brains.

To be shutting down a country to stop a virus is like shooting a man dead to kill the sickness in his body. Does it work? Yes. But it's also stupid. I say instead of that, find a drug that targets the sickness in his body and kills it without killing the man. That's the only real solution to this issue.

There are only two countries whose efforts to beat the Coronavirus have been really successful. China and South Korea. I suggest that they are the only people that we should be listening to. They both encourage the widespread use of facemasks. They both do massive testing and isolation of infected people. China shut down part of their country but South Korea didn't do that despite having around 1,000 new cases per day at peak. They just continued to do every smart thing that could reduce the rate of transmission of the virus, and it worked and is working.

If you put a mask on every face, educate everybody about how to conduct their business without spreading the virus, and do massive testing of all people suspected to have the virus, and that doesn't work (it will), that's when you can start thinking of shutting things down. Our politicians won't even distribute face-masks to market women in Lagos who are begging them for it, or wear them, but they want to #ShutDownNigeria.


Oga Seun, I disagree to some extent

First, the world is no longer talking about economy for now. It's survival first. Only the living discuss economy.

Second, shutting down is a measure being copied from countries worst affected - China, Italy, UK, US, Iran etc and for real, it helped contained
the spread as we have seen in China and Italy lately.

Third, Nigeria can't do massive testing because they are no enough test kits available. The 20,000 test kits that Jac Ma donated is being
used for Aso Villa, governors and politicians. I hear NCDC personnel are usually happy testing politicians because they get cash gratification
in return. As a poor man, you'll call their line until Jesus comes .... no answer.

I fear for Naija's future.

How will it affect Nairaland? Here is a short part of the answer to that:

My business does not run on food and medicines. What happens if my inverter or generator gets damaged and I need spare parts from Lagos?Coronavirus is a complicated problem, and it requires brainy solutions. Simplistic solutions like randomly shutting things down won't cut it.

These are the troublers of Nigeria/ns, their god is in their belly and they will sell their mothers to remain a stooge in the palace than be amongst the suffering people.
We have so many examples of them in the Bible.
People that have sold their souls to the devil for a morsel of food.
They have no human feelings or compassion their conscience has been pierced with hot iron.
They worship the gods of the earth and think they will be around forever!

If the gateway state (Ogun) shuts its borders then entry and exit to and from Lagos no go fit happen because you can't enter or exit Lagos by land (within Nigeria) without going through Ogun.
