#IJCovid Borno State, Nigeria Suspends LOCKDOWN!

Borno State Increasingly Isolated as Boko Haram Threatens Roads

Borno state is suspending lockdown after index case was recorded just 3 weeks ago. In a statement on Wednesday night to journalists, the Deputy Governor and state Chairman, COVID-19 Response Committee, Usman Kadafur, said the purpose of ordering a lockdown had been achieved.

He said, “The lockdown is being suspended indefinitely to study the situation for the time being, however, where the situation escalates, the government should revert to the status quo.

“The use of facemasks by the public be made mandatory and enforcible. “Government, traditional rulers, religious leaders, community leaders, and opinion leaders should enforce social distancing, especially in public gatherings/worship places.

“Henceforth, Juma’at prayers and five daily prayers shall be observed in all mosques as recommended by Borno State Council of Ulamas in strict adherence with the social distancing and the face mask.

“All churches shall conduct church services as recommended by the Christian Association of Nigeria, Borno Chapter in strict adherence to social distancing and use of facemasks.”

Other conditions were given for public transportation, sales of liquor, amongst others while civil servants from grades 1-12 are asked to continue to work from home expect they are directed otherwise. Big mistake if you ask me. Remember the church spread in South Korea?

  1. It's all to score chip political point, I believe God is aware of the COVIC-19 and GOD never said it's until when we are gathered that HE will answer our prayers.
    So if market n work were people go just to get food to survive, what has worshipping have to do with this if truly it's all for the sake of GOD, then GOD is aware of how Coronavirus spread!
    Let him gain the political chip point, but if things turn critical I pray he has enough state fund to manage Covic-19 patients and not to start disturbing FG for help.
