Public Officials Moving With 20 Cars Convoy Is 'Madness' - Peter Obi

Former governor of Anambra state and 2019 presidential running mate of the PDP, Mr. Peter Obi has lashed out at some governors who have started relaxing the coronavirus lockdown in their states for religious reasons.

Obi warned that such actions could lead to worse cases of the infection in Nigeria.

Naija News recalls some governors relaxed the lockdown to allow Easter celebrations and Friday Jumat prayers.

However, Obi who spoke during an interview with Arise TV, condemned the actions.

According to him, “It is wrong to relax lockdown because of people going to church. Faith is a thing of the mind. You can worship without going to church.”

“We have a crisis that we don’t have the resources to manage. The greatest country in the world is America. They are on their knees now health wise and economically. We should not allow that because we cannot manage it.

“Lock up Nigeria and we will solve our problems from within.”
