In a situation that seems shocking, the governor of Ogun state, Dapo Abiodun has gone against the rule of the federal government, NCDC and other health agencies in ensuring a social distance to stop the spread of Covid-19 in Nigeria.
The governor himself has been an advocate of social distancing, hand washing, sanitizing. He also went extramile to make a jingle about it with a network provider where everyone using the line gets called and listen to his voice on taking measures to stop the spread of covid-19.
However, it is now disappointing to discover that Governor Dapo Abiodun, during an outing yesterday in a rural part of Ogun state got in the midst of over 500 people, with just little space between them all in the name of sharing stimulus packages.
For the sake of others he will be meeting soon, it is highly important that the governor should be arrested for violating the rules of this present time, or should be given a compulsory isolation of 14 days to ensure he doesn’t have the virus yet.
The population of those that he was with are mostly rural people, most might not have sanitizers, nose mask, even good water, one can’t say for sure that none of those in the crowd has the virus, and if one of them had it yesterday, it simply means the governor has put them or himself in serious danger.
Apart from the crowd getting close to him, he made them stand very close to one another, which is one of the way the virus spread , according to information provided.
Hence, for being the reason people are gathered as against the rules, he should be arrested, and for going that close to the crowd, he should be compulsorily isolated.
It would be recalled that Popular actress, Funke Akindele was in same situation when she hosted a house party for her husband, with at least 10 people in attendance, she got arrested by the Lagos state government and was equally punished.
