COVID-19: Governors Should Make Sacrifices, Cut Security Votes – Adegboruwa

A legal practitioner and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, has called on the governors of the 36 states to make sacrifices.

Adegboruwa made this call during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Tuesday.

While calling on the governors to cut the security votes allocated to their respective states, he believes that doing so will help the Federal Government curtail the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

“My suggestion, therefore, is that the President should consult with the governors for them to make a sacrifice to cut off their security votes,” he said.

Reacting to the advice of President Muhammadu Buhari for all Nigerians to wear their face masks in view of the deadly virus, the learned lawyer described it as commendable.

He, however, lamented that the prices of the face masks have increased in the country, wondering how the government expects the masses to afford them.

“As you can see the President has advised all of us to embrace the use of facemasks which is really ideal and commendable. But where do we get them? The prices have gone up.

“The states will have the discretion to modify the regulations of President Muhammadu Buhari. But the point I am emphasising is the need for consultations especially with the governors of the states before a major broadcast like that will come up,” he said.
