Nigerian singer cum politician, Bankole Wellington a.k.a Banky W has blasted the government for making Nigerians troop into the National Identification registration centers not minding Coronavirus.
Banky W has described the act as completely reckless, inconsiderate and dangerous. He said that this cannot be happening and the Nigerian Center For Disease Control will them high infection rates.
In series of tweets on his Twitter page on Friday, January 22, Banky called ok the government to halt the registration process because people are dying.
“In the middle of the pandemic, this is how our Nigerian Government has its citizens queuing up to get their NIN numbers. Completely reckless, inconsiderate and dangerous. Then tomorrow the NCDC will release covid infection rates and say social distancing. This country sha. Kai.
“@NCDCgov @NigeriaGov @NGRPresident This is completely irresponsible of us as a country, to insist on this mad scramble for NIN numbers in the middle of Covid’s 2nd wave. People are dying. We should be smarter/wiser/better than this for goodness sake.”
In another tweet, he urged Nigerians to take pictures and videos of the crowded NIN centers so the can ’embarrass’ the government with it.
“Can we take more pictures & videos of NIN enrollment centers and post them to @NCDCgov @NigeriaGov @NGRPresident. How they can tell us to do social distancing on one hand and then use this NIN madness to expose all of us to covid? We must embarrass them into doing the right.”
