FG Shows Regret As Some Returnees Submitted Wrong Addresses Amidst Coronavirus Pandemic

As Nigeria battles with  COVID-19, FG said it has continue to trail 4370 contact cases but expressed displeasure as most of the returnees from abroad submitted wrong addresses.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alh. Lai Mohammed, during a briefing on COVID-19 update.

He said: “We have 4,370 people of interest whom we are tracing. We urge those who have had contact with suspected cases to
immediately report to the authorities".

He added “We are on the verge of reaching the level of community spread. We must stop this immediately or we will record exponential cases in the days ahead. There is no better way to say this.”

Continuing, “Let me say, without mincing words, that we are not getting the kind of cooperation that this moment deserves from Nigerians. Many are busy engaging in meaningless criticisms instead of complying with the stipulated directives to keep people safe.

The Minister Stressed that "Some Nigerians who flew into the country from overseas filled wrong addresses and phone numbers in their forms, making it difficult to trace them when the need arises, while some defied orders to stay away from large gatherings to ensure social distancing".

Lai Mohammed later urged citizens to support the government while he added that it's time for strong enforcement as Nigerians have disregarded several persuasions.
