Another Total Lockdown Would Be Counterproductive- Festus Keyamo Warns

Nigeria’s Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, says another lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic, would be counterproductive.

The Presidential Taskforce on COVID19 and the Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, have both hinted that a lockdown is imminent considering the rate at which residents of Lagos, Abuja and Ogun state have consistently flouted all the guidelines issued prior to easing the initial one-month lockdown on May 4.

Taking to his Twitter handle to share his disapproval for another lockdown, Keyamo wrote

”My personal view is that another total lockdown would be counterproductive. Before defeating the virus, we must learn to live with it all around us & practice the skills of avoiding it like a landmine. Practice makes perfect. We cannot perfect those skills by locking ourselves up”
