As he cautioned that the guidelines to be adhered to along side the easing of the lockdown were not being followed.
He expressed concernes that corporate organizations expecially banks ignored the NCDC guidelines for infection prevention and control.
“When we say take responsibility this time, yes we’re addressing individuals, but we really needed to address corporate Nigeria.
