You would recall that Naija News NG reported that the coordinator of the Presidential Task Force, Dr. Sani Aliyu, said Nigerians are not complying with the COVID-19 prevention protocols and social distancing guidelines .
”Nigerians have continued to show persistent and remarkable lack of compliance to COVID-19 prevention protocols which is quite worrying.
In the cities where the adherence to these protocols were high in the initial two weeks of the ease lockdown, progressively over time, citizens are letting down their guards and this remains of great concern. There is partial to total non-compliance to face mask and physical distancing protocols by the public. Many Nigerians only use their facemask either to avoid security agents or where they are told to do so” he said .
