Worried by the COVID-19 pandemic, former governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Dalhatu Bafarawa has appealed to both the public and civil servants in Nigeria to sacrifice some percentage of their monthly earnings to enable the federal and state governments have more resources to share to the majority of Nigerians that are not working.
The former governor, while noting that the ravaging COVID-19 remained a serious global concern added that it causes serious emotional frustration.
Bafarawa who spoke at a press conference in Sokoto, further advised the federal, state and local governments to open other forms of generating revenues to help in cushioning the effect of the lockdown on ordinary Nigerians, as that will also mitigate against the envisaged economic catastrophe.
“It appears that no country, as days passed by that is spared of the menace and catastrophe of this disease. In some countries across the world, particularly, China, Italy, Spain and the USA, the death toll is even unimaginable. Literally, people are dying in their thousands almost on daily basis. Yet, it seems to us all that there is no end of
these deaths insight,” he said.
The former governor and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain while appealing to all civil and public servants to make sacrifices for the overall benefit of humanity, advised that, they should volunteer some percentage of their
salaries to enable government buy foodstuff and distribute to the vast majority of Nigerians who are not earning any salary.
