Nigeria first lady and wife of president Buhari, Aisha Buhari, has called for a total lockdown in Nigeria over the coronavirus pandemic.
Mrs Buhari, in a tweet on Monday, commended the recent school lockdown in the country but described the act as counterproductive if parents still go to work.
She said: “It is commendable that state governors have closed down schools; however, this could be counterproductive if parents are still going to work. We should not isolate students and expose their parents. Let us remember that they will meet at home.”
The President’s wife had revealed on Thursday that one of her daughters, who returned from the United Kingdom, was in self-isolation amidst the coronavirus scare.
Also, a former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday, revealed that one of the sons tested positive to coronovirus.
The coronavirus pandemic has about 350,000 confirmed cases, 14,000 deaths globally as at today, according to worldometers.
