President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria’s economy is too fragile to enforce a fresh COVID-19 lockdown.

He however, called on Nigerians to obey all protocols recommended by health authorities to curtail the spread of the lethal coronavirus.

Buhari, who stated this on Thursday via his verified Twitter handle, said compliance with COVID-19 protocols by all Nigerians is crucial to avert a second wave of the pandemic in the country.

“Looking at the trends in other countries, we must do all we can to avert a second wave of COVID-19 in Nigeria.

“We must make sure that our cases, which have gone down, do not rise again. Our economy is too fragile to bear another round of lockdown,” @MBuhari tweeted.

The President had in March imposed a total lockdown on parts of the country including Lagos, Abuja and Ogun.
