We Can’t Lock People Up In Their Houses With A Threat Of Disease Without Food – Senate President Lawan
The Nigeria Senate president make a remark on the ongoing partial Nation lockdown due to the government effort to curb the spread of the deadly Coronavirus, he said
“So, you lock them up in their houses with a threat of disease and without food. We need to have something, a plan of some sorts, in addition to making sure we don’t lock up the farmers market for example, where people can easily go and buy something, and of course pharmacies.
We need to have some kind of supplies to people, I don’t know how we can achieve this, but we have to be ingenious.
This is a time to think deep and wide, to provide for our people, in order for us at least to deal with this challenge at the moment,” Lawan advised.
He added that the Senate Committees on Appropriation, Finance and National Planning will oversight the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control on the strict application of the N6.5 billion to be released for the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.
I believe that our Committees on Health, in the Senate and in the House, must be alert to this, when funds are released, so that they (NCDC) don’t just go on jamboree spending the money elsewhere, where we may not achieve this kind of spread that is extremely necessary,” he said
