The minister said this on Thursday at a press conference in Abuja that instead of complying with the stipulated directives to keep people safe, some Nigerians who flew into the country from overseas filled wrong addresses and phone
numbers in their forms, making it difficult to trace them when the
need arises.

He said some Nigerians defied orders to stay away from large gatherings while some religious leaders willfully flouted the directives to ensure social distancing.

The minister stressed that the government is doing its best, adding that the government needs the citizens to do their best too.

He, however, noted that “we have now gone past the stage of persuasion”, adding that it is time for strong enforcement.
