President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that Nigeria’s economy is too fragile for fresh coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown.

Naija News reports that the president stated this in a post on his Twitter handle @MBuhari on Thursday.

Buhari stated that compliance with COVID-19 protocols by all Nigerians is crucial to avert a second wave of the pandemic in the country.

“Looking at the trends in other countries, we must do all we can to avert a second wave of COVID-19 in Nigeria.

“We must make sure that our cases, which have gone down, do not rise again. Our economy is too fragile to bear another round of lockdown,” Buhari wrote.

Recall that President Buhari had in March imposed a total lockdown which lasted over five weeks on parts of the country including Lagos, Abuja and Ogun to curb the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
