Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation in Nigeria has reacted to the number of deaths being experienced in Kano State amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Chief Fani-Kayode said he was not surprised by the development as people were not being tested and the government has not put adequate measures in place to check the spread of the infection in the state.
He warned that if urgent and drastic steps were not taken to check recent developments, the state and Nigeria might experience greater catastrophes.
The PDP chieftain made his mind known through the posts on his Twitter page.
“In a nation of 200 million people which is being ravaged by COVID-19, only 10,000 have been tested for the disease. 90% of those that have Coronavirus are asymptomatic.
“This means that millions of Nigerians may have the disease but don’t know it because they have not been tested.
“The fact that people are dying like flies in Kano does not surprise me because people are not being tested for the disease, and neither are serious measures to fight the scourge being put in place. More testing is required, and the lockdown must continue and must be strict.
“Enforced with reasonable palliatives and support from the FG to help the poor and needy. Anything short of this will lead to catastrophe and many more deaths. Stay in, calm, and safe,” he said.
