Controversial Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu has written an open letter to the Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu, urging him to release N25,000 to Lagosians if he intends to extend the lockdown in the state.
According to the actor, the only thing worse than the novel disease in Lagos right now is hunger.
“Dear Governor #Babajidesanwoolu, the only thing worse than Coronavirus in Lagos right now is HUNGER…
“I am an #Igbo man who knows #history, hunger is what ended the fighting spirits of Igbos during the civil war, so nobody should lecture me,
it is laughable for us to follow #UK, #Italy or #Spain in doing lockdown without the necessary palliative for the masses
or have we forgotten so soon that over 80 million
Nigerians allegedly live on less than one Dollar per day?
Even this 2 weeks #covid19 lockdown in #Lagos is making Lagosians cry and in serious hunger,
with over 20 million people allegedly living in Lagos, how many homes has Governor Babajide Sanwoolu reached with food and money?
Is this how lockdown is in #London or #Rome?
Is it the coronavirus our government at the state level is more interested in or the masses?
President Buhari has done fantastic in federal government palliative, what of our governors? They say a hungry man is an angry man, true or false?”
