Give Nigerians N50,000 each, says Yul Edochie as celebrities react to 14 days Coronavirus Lockdown
As an eminent 14 days lockdown begins in Nigeria, Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie and other celebrities have beckoned on Nigeria’s President, Muhammad Buhari, to give out at least N50,000 each to all Nigerians to lessen the effect of the lockdown.
“Dear President @MBuhari Pls provide an economic relief package for Nigerians, even if it’s 50k each, it will go a long way.People are hungry, locked down with no money, begging left, right & centre.With the situation like this, it’ll be difficult to keep people at home”, Yul Edochie wrote.
This is coming after President Muhammadu Buhari while addressing the nation this evening on the wild spread of Coronavirus in Nigeria, announced complete lockdown in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun for the next two weeks.
The measure, he said is to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), said to have been linked to persons who have travelled from these centres.
Buhari said inter state and intercity movements are restricted to prevent further spread.
