Palliatives or not, the choice to live is yours. The world's super power are on their knees despite their state of the art facilities. We now know that the rich also cry. People are dying in these countries in their thousands per day. Others commit suicide.

You dare not violate these orders in Germany, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Rwanda, Ghana even in South Africa. Compliance in these countries is not driven by what to receive from their respective governments, but the choice to live and fear of severe penalty if caught violating the order.

Go ask the Yemenis and Syrians how they survive these years of internal crises/war. What do I say about Burundi, Somalia, Sudan, Congo, Afghanistan, Nepal, India, Niger and Bangladesh. They also comply despite millions of poor and destitutes.
No state assistance. It's purely a choice between life and death.

What intervention do you expect from the government, it's purely not realistic. Kindly consider these scenarios for 200 million Nigerians:

1. 200 million @ N1000 = N200 billion.
2. 200 million @ N10,000 = N2 trillion.
3. 200 million @ N100,000 = N20 trillion.

Option 1 cannot solve the problem of hunger for 3 days.

Option 2 despite being about 30 percent of the budget, cannot sustain an average family for 1 - 2 weeks, even if you live in a village.

Option 3 about a 3-year budget that could paralyse the nation economically. It cannot fix hunger problems for most families for 1 - 2 months, yet it implies the governments will be down for three years - no salaries, no infrastructure.

Let's be reasonable please. Some Nigerians believe their religious leaders who add little or nothing to their lives. If they place you on 21 days dry or white fast, you don't ask them what foods to break your fast.

This is a war time. We are fighting an unseen enemy - coronavirus. It does not contract you for sexual sins, wickedness, etc, but for violating absolute regard for:

1. Consistent hand-washing.
2. Keeping your face free from viruses flying from human droplets and contamination from your hands.
3. Unquestionable home-stay and uncompromising social distancing few times you must go out to buy essential things.

Remember, you live for yourself and your family. You don't live for the government. It is practically impossible for a 200 million population to miss you or feel your premature exit (i.e. demise) - you are just a drop in Nigeria's ocean. Please live for your destiny and live for God.
