Reactions Trail President Buhari Easing Lockdown From 4th Of May
President Muhammadu Buhari in a speech addressing the nation on Monday extended the lockdown by one week in Lagos, Abuja, and Ogun state amid the coronavirus pandemic.
However, he stated that there will be a gradual easing of the lockdown:
“The lockdown in the FCT, Lagos & Ogun States shall subsist remain in place until these new ones come into effect on Saturday, 2nd May 2020 at 9 am,”
The president after the expiration of the lockdowm, there will be a national “curfew from 8 pm to 6 am.”
He further stated that there will be no social and religious gatherings and “mandatory use of face masks or coverings in public in addition to maintaining physical distancing and personal hygiene.”
This has since stirred several conversations online with people airing their opinion.
See some reactions below:
•Nigeria will relax lockdown.
•People will get carried away.
•They will go back to their reckless ways.
•Covid19 cases will explode & increase
•Nigerians will run back inside and ask for another lockdown.
This has always been my fear and worry.
I hope we all use our sense.

Lets ignore the fact that Bubu stated #LockdownEnd on 4th of May , does Buhari and the presidency health advisory team thinks Covid-19 is just a mere night virus? cos I’m wondering the theory behind the dusk to dawn curfew

Buhari knows Nigerians are angry so he just gave us 1 week lockdown instead of the usual 2 weeks so we’ll cool down.
When 4th of May eventually comes , he’ll give us 3 weeks lockdown.
Bubu knows what he’s doing.
