Ujah who spoke on Saturday said: “How much have we complied with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) protocols of using face masks, hand washing and social distancing. On all counts we have failed.
“The public is not supporting the government in this regard, and I also think that some officers of government are engendering this lawless attitudes of Nigerians because leadership is by example.
“This gives them the impression that covid-19 does not exist; because if it exists, officers of government show be able to comply with the NCDC protocols.
Confidence must be built because it is a public health issue, and I believe that if the officials comply, then others will comply. Apart from airlines and probably banks that insists that you must wear a face mask otherwise you will not be allowed in.
“This is also in religious centres. But it is no longer about wearing mask masks, but the appropriate wearing of face masks. A person not properly using the mask will not protect himself and others around him. Appropriate use of face masks is a challenge. Another is that we are not even complying with the rules.”
Also, the immediate past President of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD), and current Chairman of the NMA Kaduna chapter, Dr. Aliyu Sokomba, said: “It should have become clear and evident by now that for whatever reasons, the pandemic is not manifesting here as it does in other parts of the world. This is a reality we must admit. This may be attributable to either genetic makeup of our people or some form of variations or mutations that is responsible for us not coming down with the disease.
