He warned Nigerians to protect themselves, adding that the disregard of safety measures in the country might lead to a worse situation in 2021.
His post on his Twitter page read: “Last week, we recorded the highest weekly number of COVID-19 cases
“Despite increasing cases, there is disregard for public health & safety measures
“If we don’t protect ourselves now, we may have a worse situation in 2021. Celebrate responsibly.”
