Rivers State Gov Wike Set To Re-impose Covid 19 Lockdown From January As Cases Surge...

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, says he will re-impose lockdown beginning from January as the number of coronavirus cases surge in the state.

Wike gave hint of imminent second phase of lockdown amid rising cases of COVID-19 during the thanksgiving church service in celebration of the 90th birthday of Mrs. Priscilla Nwanediye Mark, at the St. Martin’s Anglican Church, Omagwa in Ikwerre Local Government on Sunday.

He lamented as worrisome the refusal of most churches and markets in the State to enforce compulsory wearing of face masks in adherence to COVID-19 protocol.

Wike said the State government had initially relaxed the restriction on the number of persons who worship in churches, but with the second wave of COVID-19, he will by this week announce new stringent measures to check the spread of COVID-19 cases in the State.

“When you go to some churches, they don’t wear masks. Go to the market, they don’t wear masks. They believe COVID is not real. It’s not real because it has not happened to you; nobody has died whom you know. When somebody has died and the person was close to you, you will know that COVID is real.

“So, it is real and I want to appeal to all of you that we have to be stricter now because the second wave is more dangerous than the first wave. It’s very, very dangerous. I know how many people we have lost since the second wave started,” he said.

  1. I'm tired of all these. Lord help us, please.

  2. It shouldn't be a strict lock down else the hardship will bite heavily on people.

    1. Try and listen to news today so that you'll feel the harshness and threat in his voice

    2. As crazy as some america's are,we still wear face mask in public places, either a shopping mall,a grocery store,some stores won't let u inside if u don't have a facemask on even inside the airport e.t.c some churches care still online.
      Is that simple obey the rules wear a face mask .take it or live it covid is real.

    3. Covid is real mehn ,the airline I am flying with to nigeria keep sending me msg about the rules ,all passengers coming to nigeria with their fleet most be 96 hours covid negative before u can board with proof and also dated.
      You must register with nigeria covid 19 portal and pay for another test after 7days of your arrival to nigeria.
      Covid is real some people don't believe wear your mask ,watch your hands,sanitize, please be safe out there.

  3. Shame no dey catch una to even talk am, after misbehaving and hiding palliative that was donated the last time. Idiots

    1. Wike shared palliative oh. Even in my big man area,it got to us,but we collected and gave to dose deserving of it. If I'm not mistaken the minister herself said rivers state was the only state that the not collect FG palliative. Went to do my NIN no,out of the 100s of people there,we were not up to 10 with nose mask and observing social distancing.

  4. January is set for another local down

  5. Don't beg them.

    Many people are burying their loved ones and lying that Corona virus is not here.
    Full blown graduates are on this blog insisting it doesn't exist.
    Nigerians are very wicked.

    Me can't be caught without guards when leaving home.
    I love my life abeg.

  6. The virus is trying to survive hence d mutation....its not that fatal except u no well normally. Just mask up, hand sanitizer, limit unnecessary movement n visits, n you'll be fine.

  7. Selfish wicked politicians. How do you plan to cushion the effect? they hide palliatives from CACOVID

  8. I knew it!

    I said Wike will be the next to carry this lockdown matter on his head.

  9. If people are dying why are you waiting to enforce lockdown?

    Abi is the virus celebrating New Year?

  10. Woke said about 40 cases have already been recorded in RVS so far.

    In his words go to club, enjoy urself from now till December 31st

    Lock down looming

    1. So according to emperor Wike, Covid19 virus is on holiday from now till 31st December, but will resume on 1/01/2021. Confuse ga dima te! In my Nsukka peeps voice
