The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has lamented that many are not supporting the Federal Government in the fight against pandemic.

According to Mohammed, rather than show appropriate cooperation, many Nigerians are just busy engaging in meaningless criticisms.

The minister stated this during a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, while giving an update on the measures being taken by the government to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. He said:

“Let me say, without mincing words, that we are not getting the kind of cooperation that this moment deserves from Nigerians. Many are busy engaging in meaningless criticisms instead of complying with the stipulated directives to keep people safe.

“Some Nigerians who flew into the country from overseas filled wrong addresses and phone numbers in their forms, making it difficult to trace them when the need arises. Some Nigerians defied orders to stay away from large gatherings while some religious leaders willfully flouted the directives to ensure social distancing.

“The government is doing its best but we need the citizens to do their best too. We have now gone past the stage of persuasion. It’s time for strong enforcement.”

This is coming after Femi Adesina revealved why President Muhammadu Buhari has not personally addressed Nigerians on the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
