World War III

Schools have been asked to close in Nigeria. I expect by the first week of April, our government will ask non-essential businesses to close. Ladies and gentlemen, we are witnessing the beginning of a different type of warfare. If you are not frightened of what is happening, you are living in a cage. This war would be fought by our doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals, and it would be a good policy if the government begins to pre-pay their salaries. We need these soldiers to be ready for this battle.

The Federal Ministry of Education is closing all tertiary, secondary and primary schools nationwide over the outbreak of the coronavirus in the country.

The ministry said it is part of measures to contain the spread of the virus.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Sunny Echono, confirmed this to PREMIUM TIMES Thursday night. He did not, however, clarify whether schools were closing Thursday or Friday or next week

More so, every African nation must declare an emergency on Covid-19 because this is World War III. Fellow Citizens, we are at war; coronavirus has attacked our peace and we must fight back with the fierce urgency of now.

No best formula in fighting the invisible Covid-19, but we have to be reasonable and weigh each step critically. It sounds so cool to shutdown schools and worship centres, how about the open markets? The latter is perhaps the lynchpin in spreading diseases anyway.

But before we get into the frenzy of shutting down everywhere, we must first remember and appreciate that here is not a developed nation. Telling people who don't have neither food nor money to stay at home is counterproductive and ridiculous too; it's not going to work.

So, before we start introducing measures meant for 'rich people', let's remember that they are in the minority, except our confused governments have concluded plans to send majority of us food and cash, then there won't be plenty casualties for staying indoors.
