By Amechi Idumuebor, For Agenda Watchdog, April 12, 2020

(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Alarmed by the burgeoning spate of COVID-19 infections in Nigeria, consequent to the seeming lackadaisical attitude of some Nigerians to the observance of social distancing and staying at home rules, the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, has warned Nigerians of the dire consequences of ignoring these preventive strategies. The minister warned Nigerians of further escalation of COVID-19 infections in the country if they continued flouting these preventive practices. Dr. Ehanire advised that a multi-pronged approach to the war on the virus by key stakeholders in the country such as the National Orientation Agency (NOA), traditional and community leaders would suffice as the best way going forward.
