Former President Goodluck Jonathan has called on Nigerians to yield to the policies of the Federal Government to help in the fight against Coronavirus in the country.
The former President’s advice was contained in a communique shared on social media on Thursday.
Jonathan urged Nigerians not to panic but follow the directives and guidelines put in place by the government and its agencies.
In his post on Thursday, the former president was of the opinion that though the world faces a global crisis that threatens peace, hope, and freedoms, Nigerians must not despair.
He stressed that while across the globe there is the climate of fear, havoc, and consequences of a new enemy, Coronavirus Disease- COVID – 19, still, Nigerians must remember that as a country, many triumphs have been achieved.
The former president urged Nigerians to come together and see the disease as a common enemy, arguing that it is only in so doing that the nation can be victorious.
“As a country, ours is a history of many triumphs in times of global and national challenges. In 2014, through solidarity and unity of purpose, we combated the dreaded Ebola virus.
“More than ever before now is the time for action, solidarity, and patriotism. Let’s all brace up and work together to combat this new scourge COVID- 19,” Jonathan stated.
