Nigerian singer Simi has disclosed that one way Nigeria can curb the outbreak of coronavirus is to put fear in it’s citizens.
According to her, the only language Nigerians understand is fear therefore the need not to spread fear will only increase the spread of the disease.
Taking to her twitter page she said one strategy Nigeria can use now is to create fear in the citizens because the only thing Nigerians respect more than religion is fear.
Adding that there is the need for the government to put the country on total shut down to save lives.
She therefore advised pastors to act responsible for once and educate their church members on the virus and advise them to stay home to prevent them from contracting the disease.
She tweeted “Don’t spread fear, they said. At this point, we might need to change that strategy because the only thing Nigerians respect more than religion is fear. Everything needs to shut be down. Not later. Now!”
“The country has been shut down for less trivial things before etc…somehow we got by. Now let’s do it for something way more important. For our lives. We’ve been governing ourselves on a lot of things that matter for a while now, we have no choice but to continue. Please.”
“If they insist on going to church, show them the stories of churches abroad where the virus spread. These religious heads need to start being more responsible. People respect you – ACT LIKE YOU DESERVE THE RESPECT. Be compassionate and tell your followers to stay home.”
