Coronavirus Lockdown: Domesticate lockdown by involving the local governments – Lagos speaker

Rt Hon Mudashiru Obasa, The Speaker Lagos State House of Assembly

The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Mudashiru Obasa, has said the coronavirus lockdown has not been “quite effective” in the state because the local governments’ administrations were not involved.

The Speaker disclosed this via his twitter handle on Thursday.

He said the idea that Lagos should not test because it does not have the capacity to treat all likely patients was not the best approach.

Obasa advised that Lagos should explore local herbs as a possible cure for the lethal disease, adding that local government chairmen should support state efforts in the fight against coronavirus.

He commended the state government’s effort in curbing the deadly virus.

“I commend the Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for their unrelenting efforts on COVID-19. But I must say that the lockdown is not quite effective.

“Can we domesticate the lockdown by involving the local governments? Just as we have the incident command at the state level, can we replicate the same at local governments with a rising number of COVID-19?

“If the lockdown will continue, it is better we move with all strategies.

“Also, I do not want to believe that we should not test because we don’t have the capacity to treat” the lawmaker averred.

He also sated that “we can try our local herbs too. If it doesn’t work then we move on, knowing very well that we have tried” .
