Lockdown: Youths Take To Sports In Alimosho Area Of Lagos

LAGOS- Day one of lockdown in Lagos saw youths in Alimosho Local Government Area (LGA) of the state taking to sports, with some streets blocked, using tyres, as the youths engage themselves happily with football.

While trying to inquire from some of the youths if they did not think that playing football had negated the sit-at-home order, which aim was to contain the spread of the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic, through social distancing, one of the youths, who did not want his name in the print, told our correspondent that they were trying to make themselves happy since government had abruptly compelled them to sit at home without notice, and no palliative to support their welfare.

“What do they want us to do? We are not put on notice. President Muhammadu Buhari, has just announced on Sunday that there would be lockdown on Monday, so we are obeying the order. We are not doing our business any more and we don’t have money to even buy food and stock because the notice was short. We are only trying to make ourselves happy by playing football.”

“When you say social distancing, we know what you mean, but all the people that are here are our friends. None of them have travelled out. We have not even mixed up with those people who travelled, so we don’t have Coronavirus. The disease is for the rich. Have you heard that any poor man contacted it? God will not allow it to come near us. God is with Nigerians. Our major problem us poverty”, he said.

He said that assuming government had provided some welfare package or even made provision for food, it would help them to relax in their apartments, cook and eat, stressing that it would be more disastrous for them to sit in their rooms, hungry and counting the ceilings.

In the Idimu area of the LGA, pockets of commercial motorcycle operators, popularly called Okada were seen doing brisk business, while some other persons were observed walking around, but most shops and public offices were under lock and key.

The compliance in Isolo Local Council Development Area (LCDA) was fully observed, as no area or street was seen blocked with used tyres.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either
    authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any solutions
    to help stop content from being stolen? I’d genuinely
    appreciate it.

    Upcoming on our blog as well  Now stop making me give away my secrets
     If you are a blogger looking for traffic, you will not comment. If you are a reader looking for interaction, you will. I can understand your thoughts, though – it’s like walking into a noisy bar wondering how the hell you’ll talk to your buddy. But honestly? If you’ve got something to say, your comments will be read by others and commented on.

  • 카지노사이트 August 29, 2020 @ 2:03 am

    Is there a point of too much? Yes. I visit blogs that have over 50 entries of “Great post! Yay!” and by number three, I’m bored and I’m gone.
    I’d like to add that the way you are responding and even opening the ideas up more in the comments section, keeps the thread going and may provide more ideas for a reader. Sometimes a post gets a few responses and just dies, frequently because everybody just wants to get their 2¢ in and they aren’t really taking in the whole conversation.”

  • 카지노사이트 August 29, 2020 @ 2:08 am

    However, seeing as you are here, I would say you are already taking steps in the right direction. If we can help you any further, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
    When you see comments that are alive, interesting, and readers discuss back and forth amongst themselves (along with the blogger), don’t you *want* to be involved?
