The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said that he is in support of a total lock down.
“We need to observe social distancing. It is a new culture that we have to abide with. I will support total lockdown if the government decides to do that. I am in support of it. There should be a total lockdown if the government observes that we are not complying.
“I could listen attentively to Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johson yesterday (Tuesday); and Great Britain is under lockdown now. If we have to do it, the government will do it,” Tinubu stated in Lagos after a close-door meeting with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha Buhari, had also called for a complete lock down.
The APC leader is a former Governor of Lagos State.
