Ikechi Uko, a travel expert and consultant, admitted that it was time to close the borders, with the third case of Covid19 in Nigeria.
“I have been against closing of the border and declaring an emergency but with this whole family in quarantine, it is time to activate the protocols. There should be no public gatherings, no touching, no meetings for the next 15 days.
“Can we all push this agenda. I know it hurts our industry but we should lead and save the society,” Uko added.
