Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola has advocated total lockdown of the country for a month to save the country from the ravaging of coronavirus, as the state discharged its first victim from hospital.

The Governor, while addressing journalists on Sunday evening at the Government House in Osogbo said total lockdown is the best option to save Nigeria from going the way of Italy, USA, Spain and Iran who were severely hit by the deadly disease.

Oyetola said the two weeks lockdown is not only in the interest of the masses but the entire country, stressing the need for the Federal Government to extend it to all the states of the federation.

“If I have my way, I would suggest that the Federal Government shuts the entire country for a month to avoid Nigeria plunging into situations like those of US and many other European countries battling seriously to save their citizens.

This not a child’s play, the lockdown is not for the interest of government officials but for the teeming populace to stay healthy and safe. Chinese government locked down the country for a month before it could defeat the deadly virus.”, he said.

The Governor added that the index case in the state was released from the hospital after testing negative to the virus twice as directed by the National Centre for Disease Control.
