Typical lockout warning by Onitiri

Nigeria cannot afford lockdown of its economy now. It will have a disastrous effect  which will compound our insecurity  and  unemployment calamities.

Many Nigerians don’t have solid and permanent jobs that can sustain them during any lockdown. If some people don’t go out in a day, there won’t be food on the table for their families.

This warning was given by a Lagos-based socio-political activist, Chief Adesunbo Onitiri, in a statement in Lagos on Friday.

This is in a reaction to a call for total lockdown of Nigeria’s economy, on Monday in Abuja by the First Lady, Aisha Buhari.

“Nigeria” Onitiri noted, “is presently the world’s poverty capital and any lock down on our economy will have a disastrous and devastating effect which will compound our insecurity and unemployment calamities”.
