The Nigerian government has directed citizens to stay at home in order to contain the spread of coronavirus. Some states like Lagos, Ogun and even the Federal Capital Territory have been asked to ban all movement as COVID-19 continues to spread with an increase in the number of cases.
Due to this lockdown, many Nigerians who make their livelihood by going out each day would find it hard to survive during this time, but to contain and hopefully eradicate the virus, drastic measures have to be taken.
In a bid to make life easier for people, popular Nigerian actor turned politician Yul Edochie has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to provide relief funds for Nigerians during this difficult time.
The actor asked the president to provide N50,000 each for Nigerians. He said the money would go a long way.
According to him, people are hungry and they are in lockdown with no money. He said many are begging others for money. Edochie said with a situation like this it will be difficult to keep people at home.
