Timi Dakolo faults Buhari over relaxation of COVID-19 lockdown order

Husky singing R&B musician, Timi Dakolo has faulted the decision by President Muhammadu Buhari to approve the gradual relaxation of the COVID-19 lockdown in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Lagos and Ogun states with effect from May 4, 2020.

The popular Nigerian act who took to his official Twitter page to react to the decision by President Buhari, said that relaxing the lockdown despite the increasing number of COVID-19 cases was not a good idea.

According to Timi Dakolo, the efforts and aim of relaxing the lockdown order of the Federal Government may be jeopardised due to non-adherence to government’s directive on social distancing.

Timi Dakolo wrote on Twitter; “This lockdown they want to relax is not a good idea,I repeat it is not a good idea. The number are not encouraging at all and we don’t know how to ensure social distance..#myopinion

“I hope you are doing the things you told yourself you would do,If you had time..I hope,” he added.

Recall that President Buhari on Monday in a nationwide broadcast on COVID-19 approved the gradual relaxation of the lockdown in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Lagos and Ogun states and also ordered a two-week total lockdown of Kano State effective from Monday.

Kano State has been rocked by reportedly mysterious mass deaths in the last few weeks.

On Lagos and the FCT, the President said the easing of the lockdown would be followed strictly with aggressive reinforcement of testing and contact tracing measures while allowing the restoration of some economic and business activities in certain sectors.
