The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, says the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted and distorted his social life.
Speaking at the Presidential TaskForce (PTF) briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja on Thursday, Mustapha noted that he is being treated as a suspected COVID-19 patient in his house.
He said: “I don’t know your experiences out there, but I can tell you that it is one thing that has totally disrupted and distorted our social life.
“I leave my house every day and I return in the evening. I’m treated as a suspect. I have to wash my hands; I have to decontaminate my shoes; I have to walk into my house and barely will I be sitting down, my wife will ask me, ‘have you bathed?’ I will say, ‘I just arrived’.
“I don’t know what your experiences are, but that’s the level of disruption the COVID-19 has brought into our homes and into our lives and it is the way we respond to it that will determine whether we’ll win this war.”
The SGF, however, appealed to Nigerians to take personal responsibility and adhere to the guidelines issued by the government in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
