Nigerians have been advised not to abandon COVID-19 safety precautions, as the war against the pandemic is not yet over.

Dr. Olusegun Aderemi, the Lagos state based industrialist and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of AutoFit Energy Limited, has advised through his chat with reporters, saying that Nigerians must also guard against any acts or situation that would force the Federal government to impose another round of total lockdown.

He warned Nigerians not to allow the second wave of COVID-19 to devastate the nation’s economy, further stressing that reports from the western world about the pandemic’s resurgence were frightening.

“Well, what I would advise is that our people should take the issue of personal hygiene seriously. It is not yet time for us to think we have won the battle against COVID-19. Let us continue to observe all regulations on social distancing. Let everyone use his or her Facemasks and wash our hands regularly.

“I have observed that a lot of people have abandoned safety precautions. This is not good enough; people should not see observing safety protocols as punishment from the government but for the good of our collective well being.

“Our economy is already in a recession, so going into another lockdown might be unbearable for the citizens.

Aderemi, who was recently installed as Nigeria Regional President of a United Kingdom-based safety association, Occupational Health and Safety Strategy (OSHAssociation UK), cautioned that Nigeria could not withstand another round of lockdown

“Thank God that there is a vaccine in place for COVID-19, but what I would advise the federal government is to try the vaccine on those who have been tested positive for the virus. When they administered it to those with positive cases, then we can observe”

Aderemi, the Atayero of Aramoko, also expressed concern over the country’s failing security situation, calling on the various security formations to change their strategy.

“The security situation in Nigeria should be a major concern to all discerning minds. And this is not good for the image of our country.No investors would like to come in when we record incidences of banditry, kidnappings, and killings daily.

“Let the military rejig their tactics. If you are adopting a strategy and are not getting the desired result, you need to change it.
