Buhari Will Ease Lockdown Whenever He Feels Like – Minister Of Health Reveals
The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, has on Sunday said that the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari will ease the Lockdown order whenever he wishes to.
The Health Minister disclosed this on an interview session with Channels Television (Sunday Politics).
He said the President will make his resolutions based on the report(s) he receives from Health Worker in frontline of the COVID-19 fight.
“The President will make that announcement in his own time. We will give him the facts, he will consider the facts and make his own announcements using his own wisdom.”
He also said that like other countries of the world, the President does some balances as regards to the country’s economy before resolving to easing Lockdown.
“What happens is that every country, you balance the medical and the health-related benefits from the economic-related benefits because you have an economy you don’t want to kill and you also have the health side that you don’t want to destroy.
“It’s a very delicate balance which you need to do. All countries do that; it’s not only in our country. Even in the United States, they have that debate all the time. Do we open the economy now or do we not open it now?” he said.
