  12. Pls federal government people are suffering here mostly in lagos, police people are now using it as an opportunity to sieze some okada and collect money . To get food stuff is something else, no steady power supply . There are too much hungry in the town now.

  13. Am seriously angry with the very situation going on in this country upon the punishment God gave to this wicked politicians they still don’t change they are waiting for God to come down and kill them one after the other.
    They lockdown every where without any preparation for the masses and later they will the government is doing well.
    Your people are doing and you don’t even care, all what you are after is to sit down and make one feltish that will always favour you and your partners in crime.
    Your people are dieing of hunger ooooo

  14. This lockdown aint helping matters at all, apart from the fact that Nigerians are hungry, the sharing of foods or the so-called conditional cash transfer aint getting to all the people, there are some office equipements/working equipments/tools, if not used for several days will damage or developed faults which will require money to service them, where will one get money to do all these when you asked us to stay at home and not go about our daily means of livelyhood? Even how will we get money to pay nepa bills as they already start distributing nepa bills. Please the government ought to implement good plans.

    1. It’s a very pity we are complaining at these point in time. Note: When you reject a Gift from God,You must accept same gift from Satan.We rejected a man given to us by God ( Gdluck Jonathan.When God gives you a good a good leader and you reject him,he wl allow you make a choice for yourself. Northerners and Southwesterners connived with each other sabotaged Jonathan’s led government that all the efforts made by the young man to take these nation to a greater height,thinking that all the factions is for Jona.That’s what we are suffering today.I advised that no one should complain.So painfu thhe contry s in total Bondage and Darknessl in the hands of Evil leaders led by President Muhammad Buhari. Can anything good come from them? No..The government s full of lies and heartless. How can a good leader or government lock their citizens at home without rendering any single support of either Food, Drinking water, Food items, Fund or any relief materials,upon all the Billions of naira and relief items donated by individuals and cooperate bodies. They are in Aso Rock merrying and the masses are suffering. My prayer is,one day,God will kill all of them the way he killed Mr Abacha so that we will regain our freedom from them and celebrate their death the way we celebrated Abacha’s death..Amen..

  15. Our dear president, please use your good office to consider the stiuation of your people, more over permit your people to travel to their state.long live my dear president

  18. Ur Excellency sir, may ur lockdown be effective for us pls, meaning of it, is that ,all our needs in this period of lockdown, financial challenges, food items provision, may God open ur eyes and save the life of citizens of Nigeria my country, some people in part of various state, some work daily pay like Chinese company, iron company some pay 700 a day, pls help us out of this terrible condition

  19. This govt are so wicked, no provisions of food and money, God’ll judge our politicians, Mr buhari do something don’t allow hunger kill us ooo

  20. The extension is based on the covid19 cases and its recovery accepted, Mr president has spoken well.

    Mr president should also be conscious of the situation of the poor and their means of feeding within these of lockdown because hunger you know can be more dangerous than any virus you could ever think of.

    Every child is a humble child when the father its need according to his requirements. In as much as the president is soliciting for our good he should also remember to make provision for all vulnerable Nigerians but not only the north. I will assure you Mr president once provision is made every Nigerian must obey, no average Nigeria is born fool.

  21. why begging Mr President,no need naw,let him proceed to extending d lockdown.I’m sure that when his entire family including him and all his fraudulent and deceitful cabinets experience more of the wrath of God soonest,they will come to repentance.PDP will never do anything like segregation.they would rather share the donations evenly throughout the nation.
    despite the acclaimed profess of your so called personality,yet the Country is still in debt.
    PDP wont mind to run into debts to make sure everybody benefits……
    Baba well done jawey.no Presidency like ur era
    Prsdnt Aremu Olusegun Obasanjo

  22. If only all these requests in the comment box will be met then fine, they should go ahead with extension but if not why the extension when people can’t even feed themselves staying home

  23. If these quarantine period is a good way to fight the virus, fine. Government should make proper preparation especially with every individual. Government should transfer money to every individual’s account through bvn to maintain isolation in their homes. Staying at home with food will help aids fighting the disease to do their jobs effectively. God bless Nigeria.

  24. Please Mr President the extension of this lockdown will affected many Nigerians especially we the poor.okay now Nigeria is in financial comatose, financial attarasy.please if there is way you leaders can help.the condition of the lockdown is getting worse and critical all the day due to food shortages they are some people who will go to hustle before they get what can feed their family please I am pleading if the extension of this lockdown will continue honestly we will all die of hunger a lockdown without food every day honestly the federal government have to do something about this please before hunger crushes us they should try and find a better solution to this financial problem please thanks Mr president.

  25. Shering of food will not help…….cash transfer is the solution………poeple are really hungry……Mr President sir, look in to it.

  26. Good day fellow Nigerians,
    My own view in this our governmental system is that the conscience which is the main tutor of human behavior is no where to be found,
    Now to talk of democracy I don’t think is taking properly according to its definition, Nigeria government has tune the definition to there personal side favor only.
    What we need is theocracy because masses are dying everyday and our government are not thinking about the masses case at all….. Let God arise and fight for this nation…… We just claim to be a republic but no prove cos less privileges are still living like a slave……….
    My father is a medically discharged Army but think of it since when he has been discharged he has not been entitled more than 40yrs ago, how do you want him to survive this kind of time when he is not financially balance to help the upbringings of his children to the level that his old age will not be lacking……come to think of the fact All we need is theocracy.

  27. Mr president or what you are called, the estimate shows that 40 millions Nigerians has BVN, sharing 20,000 each to those 40 millions BVN holder’s will cost you just 800 millions from those money prominent Nigerians has donated so far, each families will benefit from it.

  28. Pls Mr president,help us our people are dieing ,no food to eat .pls don’t extend this lockdown pls ..and there is no job graduate today are riding okada.pls we need job.thank you sir,God bless you

  32. Please Mr president the only problem with we the Nigerians now is all this promise and fail I know you have give other to disburse money through our BVN yet we have seen nothing please your Excellency try and do something
    God bless you

  33. We do not need extension, we should rather advise the president to borrow a leaf from the Tanzanian president who rejected shutting down of worship place, declaring that Jesus is greater than Coronavirus. We should not be locked up any longer, I want to run to the house of my Lord ,the creator of the universe. How can I celebrate Easter in my room. No ! my Jesus devoured Coronavirus over 2000years ago. Do not fear for me, For he has given me Spirit of sound mind. Alleluyah I am free from wickedness of the devil. Jesus is risen , Amen.

  34. You people makes me angry while calling that robot buhari,
    Buhari is somewhere else and you people mounted robot in replacement of buhari.
    You people should be careful.
