Facing the apparition of a new strain of covid-19, Nigeria’s former vice-President Atiku Abubakar stood to put a stone to the building. For this purpose, he calls the Head of the State to once again close Nigeria’s borders.
The former stateman encourages the federal government to fight against the new wave of coronavirus and insists on the closing of the country’s borders without abandoning flight stops to Nigeria. While Nigeria has a total of 5000 cases infected with coronavirus since the beginning of December, a new wave of the disease is announced by the authorities.
“The reason why Nigeria suffered a blow harder than necessary during the first wave of covid-19 virus, is that the federal government has not considered the warnings of well-meaning Nigerians, like others and I, to close the borders once the virus became a pandemic” has posted Atiku Abubakar on Tweeter.
For the former vice-President, it will be necessary to learn from 2020 in order not to relive it.
