COVID-19 And The Need For Attitudinal Change



By Yusuf Maruf Adesina

When Lagbaja said ” Mo sorry fun gbogbo yin o, mo sorry fun gbogbo yin lo’kookan”, we were all dancing;not knowing that the man saw the future.

The situation at this moment calls for personal safety and the safety of your family.

The government is overwhelmed and the facilities are overstretched. No palliative can be enough from government except the one from out creator. He created is and He is the provider of our needs.

We have wasted our opportunities to save for this kind of period, whether as an individual or as a nation. We are quick to compare ourselves with developed countries which have complete data of their citizens and everyone contribute to the pool by fulfilling their tax obligations.

Hence, they are able to enjoy payback time from their government. The reverse is the case here. Our of the population of active Nigerians, how many people pay correct tax?

And those that paid, how accountable is government in telling us what was paid and how it is used?

In the past, we have some states that saved for raining days, how much is the balance in that account now?

We all live by the days including our government. Now, lockdown may be staggered as if those days that will be relaxed COVID-19 will also be on holiday.

Despite the seriousness of the virus, our people are still not conscious of maintaining social distancing, forgetting that this problem is personal to you and your family.

The effect of our daily hustle has come into play that the government cannot sustain continuous lockdown and they are also scared of the rising cases of COVID-19 across Nigeria.

When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
Thank you!
