Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie tells Nigeria’s President, Muhammad Buhari, to consider paying each Nigerian 50,000 Naira to help them cope during the lockdown.
This is coming after President Muhammadu Buhari announced lockdown plans for Abuja, Lagos and Ogun which will span the next two weeks amidst the rapid spread of the Coronavirus.
The actor took to his IG space and wrote; “Dear President @MBuhari Pls provide an economic relief package for Nigerians, even if it’s 50k each, it will go a long way. People are hungry, locked down with no money, begging left, right & centre. With a situation like this, it’ll be difficult to keep people at home”,
President Buhari believes that this measure will contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), said to have been linked to persons who have traveled from these centers.
