Nigerian singer Yemi Alade has warned the Nigerian government that a quarantine will only work if the citizens are provided for.
According to her, the government should provide a sort of stimulus package to citizens to help them take care of themselves if a lockdown is going to be effective.
In many countries around the world, governments have provided a package to citizens – either through cash, tax reductions or cancelling utilities to enable its people deal with the economic downturn brought by lockdowns.
African countries who are considering similar lockdowns cannot seem to do it because the government has made no move to provide a package to the citizens and people will literally go hungry if they are forced to stay home without working and government provides no assistance.
So Nigerian singer Yemi Alade has called on the Nigerian government to provide such a package to citizens before they will agree to stay home.
