Business Owners Seek Quick End to Lockdown
Some stakeholders have reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s announcement of the partial easing of the lockdown in some states due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
One of them, a Professor of Virology at the University of Ibadan, David Olaleye said the directives of social distancing and lockdown would go a long way at reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Professor Olaleye noted that though, the virus is dangerous but adhering strictly to the regulations would reduce the rate of contraction.
On its part, an Economist, Mr Ebenezer Adegoke opined that since the outbreak of COVID-19 and the lockdown, the global economy has been affected negatively, including that of Nigeria.
Some business owners in Ibadan who said staying at home has not been easy financially noted that, if the lockdown was removed, their businesses would resume immediately to reduce the hunger.
They, therefore, called on the state Government to reduce the lockdown and curfew period to reduce their suffering.
