Nigerian Governor Suspends Coronavirus Restrictions Because Of Easter


Nigeria, just as Ghana and many other countries in the world have placed a restriction on movement as part of efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus.

This restriction of movement, largely asks citizens to stay at home. Shops that sell no essential items have been asked to close.

Churches have also been asked to shutdown.

However, as we head into the Easter Weekend, the Governor of Rivers State, Nigeria, Nyesom Wike, has suspended these restrictions to allow the citizens to observe Easter the way they have always done it – packed churches and mosques.

He said the restrictions would be back in full force after the Easter celebration is over.

However, some Nigerians have disagreed with the directives issued by the Governor.
