He said this on his official Twitter page disclosing the trends in other countries and advised citizens to do all to avert another wave of the pandemic.
He wrote, ‘Looking at the trends in the other countries, we must do all we can to avert a second wave of Covid-19 in Nigeria. We must make sure that our cases, which have gone down, do not rise again. Our economy is too fragile to bear another round of lockdown.’
