Oparanozie urges compliance with COVID-19 instructions as fans accuse government of partiality



Super Falcons’ Striker, Desire Oparanozie has urged Nigerians to comply with experts’ instructions, especially the stay-at-home order, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, reports

Raising concerns over the country’s readiness to combat the coronavirus, Oparanozie said it was in the interest of Nigerians to adhere to the preventive measures to remain safe from the virus.

Tweeting on the country’s measures against the pandemic, Oparanozie said: “I’ve been advising us to stay at home. Considering the kind of system we have. We can’t fight this virus if it hits hard on us.

Obviously the rich and influential will be attended to before anyone else. Save yourselves people.”


The ex-Delta Queens player had captained the Super Falcons at the 2019 Fifa Women’s World Cup in France.

Thomas Dennerby’s side bowed out in the Round of 16 to Germany.

The Federal Government has been criticised for the alleged preferential treatment it gives to some class of Nigerians since the pandemic hit the country.

Lamenting the neglect of the masses by the system, a fan, who identified herself as Sandra Ezekwesili tweeted, “I have not been tested, even though I may have been exposed to a confirmed case at the AMVCA, but Davido and 32 people, who have no symptoms (a criteria for getting tested), got tested.

“I was simply told to self isolate and watch.”
