Coronavirus: Share Tradermoni To Nigerians Staying At Home Now – Timi Frank Tells Osinbajo

March 29, 2020

Timi Frank, a former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Sunday charged the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo to redistribute Federal Government’s TraderMoni to Nigerians, following the outbreak of Coronavirus.

Frank observed that Nigerians need the money now as they stay at home in a bid to curb the spread of COVID-19 across Nigeria.
In a statement he signed and sent to us, the former APC spokesperson also faulted President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government for approving only N10bn to fight the disease in the country.
The Bayelsa-born political activist reads: “It is high time for Osinbajo to once again distribute the Trader Money to Nigerians who need it most at this time.
“America, with a population over of 300 million, is giving $1,200 to each citizen to cushion the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“France has put on hold the payment of light and water bills and have pledged to support companies financially.
“Canada is giving each citizen 2,000 Canadian dollars and putting mortgages on hold.
“When will Buhari tell Nigerians how he intends to ease the COVID-19 pains on Nigerians?
“Buhari didn’t hesitate to release bailout funds to states so it can be looted by his party people, now that Nigeria needs a bailout, they are claiming there is no money.
“I believe it is not above the power of the Federal Government to set aside $10 billion to help ease the current financial pressure on Nigerians.
“It is a shame that Buhari could only approve N15 billion (about $40 million) whereas American voted $2 trillion dollars, France 300 billion Euros and Germany 600 billion Euros to cushion the effect of the pandemic on their citizens.”

The Premier league football season could restart in July amidst the coronavirus pandemic and last 4- 5 weeks according to a new report.

According to a report by Football London, the Premier League, EFL, the FA and the government had a conference call on Saturday and they all discussed the possibility of starting leagues in July and the clubs will try and wrap up all the games within “four to six weeks” with no fans in attendance.
According to the report, the leagues are determined to complete their football league seasons – with most clubs having nine or ten matches of their league campaigns remaining – and failure to complete their seasons might affect their next season preparations and could lead to a loss of £750million in TV revenue for clubs.

But the FA has not come out to publicly endorse or deny the report, with a statement by them saying;

“The Premier League, EFL and PFA met today and discussed the growing seriousness of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It was stressed that the thoughts of all three organisations continue to be with everyone affected by the virus.
“The Premier League, EFL and PFA agreed that difficult decisions will have to be taken in order to mitigate the economic impact of the current suspension of professional football in England and agreed to work together to arrive at shared solutions.
“The leagues will not recommence until 30 April at the earliest. They will only do so when it is safe and conditions allow.
“Further meetings will take place next week with a view to formulating a joint plan to deal with the difficult circumstances facing the leagues, their clubs, players, staff and fans.”

March 29, 2020

As cases of Coronavirus continue to increase in Nigeria, former presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party, YPP, Kingsley Moghalu has issued warning to Muslims and Christians, urging them to adhere to experts’ advice.

The National Centre for Disease and Control, NCDC on Saturday announced more cases as number of patients with COVID-19 increases to 97.
Moghalu warned Christians and Muslims to avoid religious gathering until further notice and obey precautionary advice from authorities.
He warned that the deadly virus was about science, hence gatherings in mosques and churches should be avoided.
“I call on all Nigerians, Christian, Muslim, to be responsible in this Covid-19 crisis and observe social distancing and all guidelines issued by the authorities. Gatherings in churches and mosques should be avoided for now. It’s about science. God is the Master Scientist.”
The former presidential candidate on a post on his Twitter page also called on President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to lockdown Nigeria for a month in otter curb the spread of Coronavirus and ensure effective contact tracing.
He also suggested that state governors should reprogram their 2020 budgets to focus on COVID-19.
“Apart from the Nigerian health system’s weakness to handle large numbers of COVID-19 patients, poverty is a problem.
“This means congested masses of crowds of urban poor in Lagos, Kano, Onitsha, Aba etc. in their daily struggle for subsistence. @NigeriaGov must shutdown Nigeria for a period of one month.
“This will reduce community spread and give time for more contact tracing and to deal with medical emergency of treatments while it can still be handled.
“The army should enforce this across the country. The budgets of the federal and state governments must now be completely reprogrammed to focus on Covid-19 in 2020. Pretty much little else except security should matter now,” Moghalu added.

Coronavirus: Reno Omokri Sheds Light On The Jobs That Are Most Important

March 29, 2020
Reno Omokri is of the opinion that the coronavirus pandemic has shed more light on the jobs that are now more important.
According to Reno, these jobs are even more important than having money as millionaires have been struck by the disease and can hardly do anything about it.
”When push comes to shove, the #CoronaVirus pandemic has taught us that jobs which we thought were less important, are actually most important. Today, being a doctor, nurse, food seller, supermarket clerk, street cleaner, or policeman is more important than being a millionaire. Neither money, or power has saved those who possessed it during this #COVID19 pandemic. In fact, poorer nations, like Sierra Leone, have no cases. Meanwhile, the richest nation on Earth has over 100,000. Prime Ministers have it, but many prisoners don’t. Our hope should be on God, not money or power!”
