Banky W, took to his Twitter page to lament the lack of social distancing among Nigerian citizens at various NIN centers said Presidency was irresponsible for making citizens scramble for NIN numbers while the country fights the Coronavirus pandemic.
According to Banky, Nigeria citizens are being exposed to the same COVID-19 virus that has been taking the lives of many all because of NIN registration.
However, Banky further urged the Nigerian government to do something about the situation or put an end to it.
“How they can tell us to do social distancing on one hand and then use this NIN madness to expose all of us to covid?
“This is completely responsible for the Federal Government and to us as a country, to insist on this mad scramble for NIN numbers in the middle of Covid’s 2nd wave. People are dying.
“We should be smarter, wiser, and than this for goodness sake.
“In the middle of the pandemic, this is how our Nigerian Government has its citizens queuing up to get their NIN numbers.
“Completely reckless, inconsiderate, and dangerous. Then tomorrow the NCDC will release covid infection rates and say social distancing. This country sha,” he wrote.Banky W slams FG “Completely reckless, inconsiderate, and dangerous. Then tomorrow the NCDC will release covid infection rates and say social distancing.
