For Ogedengbe Bright Uduimho, popularly known as Drbtgar, President Muhammed Buhari extending the lockdown in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun States to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the States is a good measure.
However, Drbtgar is pleading with the Federal Government to tackle the intense hunger in the land while intensifying efforts to control the rapid spread of COVID-19.
“I think I like the measures the President is adopting to fight COVID-19 in Nigeria, but if he insists on locking people down, his government should provide food for the average Nigerian. You cannot just lock them down and expect them to starve to death. If you do not give them food and still insist on the lockdown then you are provoking a revolution which may consume us all. I hear robbery cases going on already in different places. People are hungry, he needs to do something fast,” he pleaded.
It is also good to note that on behalf of Etsako people in Cape Town, Drbtgar sent Hand Sanitizers and other gift items to 7 kings in the Etsako region to share to the communities.
Drbtgar who is the President of Etsako in Diaspora, Cape Town – South Africa, said this is line with their joint efforts in assisting the government to drastically reduce the fast spread of COVID-19 in Nigeria, especially among the people of Etsako.
“We need to always support one another, where ever we are. Etsako needs us and we are always ready to send our supports down home in every way we can. That was the reason indigenes in Diaspora came together and agreed with one voice to send Hand Sanitizers and also necessary items to the 7 Kings of our communities to aid in the control of COVID-19 spread. We believe in unity and we shall do more with time,” he noted.
Drbtgar, who is also the CEO of South African based Big Announcement Entertainment Records, likewise called on the Federal Government of Nigerian to create an enabling business environment by ensuring the provision of constant electricity and quality road networks in the country.
