Following the second wave of Covid-19 as experienced in the nation, the residents of Rivers State will be the first to experience a major lockdown.


How did Gistongist know this?


The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has threatened to lock everywhere down without recourse to anybody.


According to reports, the Governor gave this as a reaction to the open flouting of COVID-19 protocols in the state.


Governor Nyesom Wike stated that most churches members and persons who visit market places go without face masks, hence, the need for the lockdown to ensure the increase in the positive cases is reduced.


See his words:


When you go to some churches, they don’t wear mask. Go to market, they don’t wear mask. They believe COVID is not real. It’s not real because it has not happened to you; nobody had died whom you know. 


When somebody has died and the person was close to you, you will know that COVID is real. “If you don’t comply, I have no choice, but to shut down the churches; Pentecostal, Catholic, Anglican. I have no choice, because when you have it, who spends the money? It is the state that treats. 


So, we need to use the money for some other things, but not for this. Let us discipline ourselves and know that COVID is real. Let nobody tell you that there is nothing like COVID. It’s real.”

So let me reword that: Thnx for the deal with! However yeah Thnkx for spending the time to debate this, I feel strongly about it and love studying more on this topic.
