Dear Tweeps,
Before I go about my daily routine at work.
Kindly know that #COVID19 is no longer for the elites. It is now community acquired. We have on admission, tailor, okada man, petty trader, painter, Caterer, Keke rider (I’m not making this up to scare you) 1/5
These are people who have not been to the airport before or own an international passport.
The essence of this tweet is to appeal to you to kindly Stay at home, intensify social distancing, wear your face mask and wash your hands with soap and rubbing water or sanitize 2/5
It is not easy for us at work attending to our warriors and with the daily increase in numbers, you don’t want to know what it is like wearing those protective equipments daily and also you won’t like it when we take swabs from your nostrils and throat #COVID19 3/5

“Corona Court Case in Rivers State
April 1, 2020

The Governor said Dusk to Dawn. Hence the people moved freely from 6a.m to 6p.m. Shockingly, the Governor's agents were arresting people who
moved out during the day. This confusion was cleared when the Commissioner for information insisted that it was a 24hr curfew. The damage had already been done, over a hundred and twenty six persons were already arrested.

Today I received a call to come represent one of them in court. And boy...The mammoth crowd in court... The entrance to the court cell was overflowing with body-gumming people... I tried to take shots but the police siezed my phone and later released it.

So I wanted to rant since yesterday but wasn't in the mood. Hear me out now.

So I traveled to be with my family yesterday so I could escape the boredom of being stuck in Lagos all alone at home for days now. Yes o, I had to self isolate! I'm an obedient citizen nah. Lol.
Then the impending lockdown rumours were getting scary. Barely a week away from work and I was almost going crazy! Not to talk of an indefinite solitude. Man had to escape mehn! I set out and the road was pretty free. The fear of Miss Rona is the beginning of . . .
Fast forward to few minutes away from Ore and I meet these guys in uniform. I had met quite a number all the while anyway and most just waved me off. I figured my face mask scared them or something. Some of them also had masks and gloves too. Responsible officers! Lol

Empathy cannot be forced out of people. Empathy should be earned. I do not think Nigerians owe most of their leaders empathy. I totally and vehemently disagree with the assertion that we should be empathetic towards our leaders. #Gimba #LetsFightCovid19 #StayHome
We should not be blackmailed into showing empathy for the same useless leaders that refused to build standard hospitals in Nigeria. #StayHome #abbakyari #CoronaVirusInNigeria
If coronavirus was limited to Africa, they would have since fled the country. Now that they are trapped with us in the same country that they have looted and destroyed, no one should preach empathy. #Covid19Out #IWillStayAtHome #StayHome
