COVID-19: APC Reacts To Buhari’s Extension Of Lockdown For 14 Days

The Ogun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has applauded President Muhammadu Buhari for extending the lockdown in Ogun, Lagos, and Abuja for two weeks.

In a statement by Tunde Oladunjoye, Publicity Secretary, State APC Caretaker Committee, said the extension was necessary to protect Nigerians from the spread of the virus.

He also praised President Muhammadu Buhari for increasing the social investment programme recipients by one million households.

“In the last few days, Britain has witnessed close to 1,000 daily deaths; while America witnessed about 2,000 deaths in single day from coronavirus.

“There are global complaints of inadequate equipment, medications and bed space, even as frontline workers continue to be exposed to the ravaging virus, for which a cure is yet to be found.

“The powerful nations have been rendered powerless by the coronavirus pandemic. Most of these countries have also unavoidably, extended their lockdowns.

“It is, therefore, inevitable that we must support government at various levels to curb the spread and cure the infected, even as painful as such measures may appear,” he said.
