The existence of covid-19 in Nigeria is still a debatable issue as opinions vary on whether or not leaders in the country are lying to the public on the state of the pandemic in the country.
A recent report ran by online news outlet Legit, had claimed a recently released covid-19 patient, said her experience in the isolation center made her convinced that there’s nothing like covid-19 in Nigeria.
A renown Media Mogul, founder of DAAR Communications, which owns African Independent Television (AIT) and Ray Power Radio, Raymond Dokpesi, has similarly casted doubt on cases of covid-19 in the country, and demands that he be enlightened on the difference between covid-19 and malaria.
Dokpesi’s comment triggered reactions with some Nigerians feeling justified having described the disease as ‘scam’, and accused leaders in the country of taking advantage of the disease to loot the country dry, even if it means subjecting the masses to further sufferings
With trust in Nigeria government almost non-existent, former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav seem not surprised at all, as he said leaders in the country do not believe God exists, hence their attitude toward leadership in the country.
Tsav said when leaders no longer feel guilty of wrong doings, it’s because they feel they are not accountable to anyone.
This was said in a statement he personally signed and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Makurdi.
“Our politicians do not believe in God and the nothingness of this world. They don’t even think of death.
“Our democracy is turning into something else. We seem not to know what democracy even means. Many see it as a means to acquire wealth albeit by fraudulent and dishonest means,” Tsav said.
The implementation of school feeding by the Buhari administration has also attracted condemnation by critics who accuse the Buhari administration of doing everything within its power to fleece the common wealth of the nation.
The same is the case with the provision of covid-19 palliatives meant to cushion the effects of the Covid-19 lockdown on millions of poor households in the country. Many poor affected families are yet to receive the said palliatives.
Meanwhile, Covid-19 cases in the country has topped 7000 according to latest data from the Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC).
