People disregard the social distancing order
Lagos State Governor claims that the state can go to work but civil servants should stay at home. Sandra Ezekwesili asks why the governor should tell civil servants to stay at home. What do Lagosians think?
There are also offices in the state where workers are not coming to work. Some offices have mandated that only 60 percent staff capacity in regard to Lagos state government directives.
Yet, how about the other group of workers in Lagos who are not working at all. They have no activity for their business, they don’t work from home.
Sandra during the Big HardFacts engages Lagos residents on their first day back to work. She wants to know if they miss the office. For those who have been coming to the office during the lockdown, she wants them to relate what their experience have been since the other workers started reported to the office.
Some of the responses reveal that transportation costs are higher. This applies to all sorts of transportation means such as danfo, okada, or maruwa. A responder on the show says he would love to thank a philanthropist who sent him five thousand naira through USSD transaction.
Another responder says that there are commercial busses out there that pack passengers full, disregarding the 60 percent passenger capacity. He believes that Nigeria doesn’t have the capacity to handle a serious outbreak of Coronavirus. Also, he says people disregard the social distancing order.
