Expressing his opinion via his Twitter page, the minister said all Nigerians need to do is to learn to live with the virus and defeat it, and that can’t be done if we lock up ourselves.

“My personal view is that another total lockdown would be counterproductive. Before defeating the virus, we must learn to live with it all around us & practice the skills of avoiding it like a landmine. Practice makes perfect. We cannot perfect those skills by locking ourselves up,” he tweeted.
