We would like to firstly salute and appreciate the immense efforts of the Nigeria’s Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 in conjunction with Lagos States Government and proactiveness of the NCDC on covid-19. History will forever remember your doggedness in the fight against Coronavirus.
Meanwhile, the past six months has been turbulent for MCs, Comedians and Entertainers in the country, following the executive orders of both the states and federal governments which has created an unprecedented economic downturns whilst we were not given any palliatives to cushion the effect of the pandemic on us.
We understand that the need for everyone to comply with covid-19 prevention guidelines is very paramount to us. However, considering the growing success rates of recovery and gradual ease of lockdown wherefore businesses and religious centers are reopening with guidelines, we hope that our dear industry will also be given an utmost consideration to reopen so that we can put food on our table.
We appeal for government intervention (Mr Babajide Sanwo Olu and President Mouhammadu Buhari) to support our dear industry with bail out funds and policies that will engender financial stability over the period of time the pandemic will be over.
