COVID-19: “The Poor Attitude of Nigerians Has Been Our Biggest Challenge” – Boss Mustapha


By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Mr Boss Mustapha, who also doubles as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), on Thursday, slammed the poor attitude of Nigerians for the limited success so far recorded by the country in its ongoing war against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mustapha made this submission during the daily routine press briefing of the PTF, where he lamented that despite all the time, energy and resources that the government and its partners had committed to halting the further spread of the virus, the lackadaisical attitude of Nigerians had not helped matters.

According to Mustapha, Nigerians, rather that obeying simple guidelines, preferred flouting them, stressing that the curve of the rampaging disease would have been flattened by now if Nigerians had obeyed simple instructions.

Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country, has a total of 50,964 confirmed cases of COVID-19, out of which 37,569 have been successfully treated and discharged, while 992 deaths have been so far recorded.
