“You cannot afford to use twitter to judge opinion because over 70% of low income earners in Lagos are not on twitter!”
“Lockdown and use the army for the roadblock the police collecting bribes and let people move around. We need a month total lockdown please let safe life”
“An inffective lockdown is a complete waste. Relevant agencies should be charged with a more proactive enforcement of social distancing and other precautionary measures. The initial lockdown wasn’t that productive to begin with.”
“Why is the government seeking the people’s opinion? Did you consult us before you eased the lockdown?
Did you listen to us when we frowned at your decision? Shift abeg!”
“When you have more than enough public and taxpayers money to eat. Definitely, you have enough rubbish to say. A hungry man is an angry man. Provide palliative”
