The Secretary to the Government of the Federation and PTF Chairman, Boss Mustapha, has urged Nigerians to join the fight against coronavirus, saying countries where the citizens were disciplined obey rules on social distancing and the face mask use.
“Truly, we have got to the level or stage of personal responsibility. This is where we have got to now. We must take personal responsibility for our safety, our lives and those of our loved ones. This is not the time to expect government or the National Assembly to take responsibility for us. At individual level, this is the time that we must own up.
“What happens subsequently will be dependent on what we do as a people and as a nation. The issue of social distancing should not be imposed by police, there are other countries disciplined enough. Taiwan didn’t lock down for even one day. But gradually they flattened the curve as a result of social distancing and the wearing of mask.
