A former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, said it was wrong to relax the coronavirus lockdown because of religious reasons.

Speaking on a programme on Arise Television on Friday, Obi said the coronavirus pandemic was getting out of hand and that the country did not have enough resources to manage it, TheCable reported.

He said states which had relaxed the lockdown for Easter celebrations did not have enough ventilators should the crisis escalate.

“It is wrong to relax the lockdown because of people going to church. Faith is a thing of the mind. You can worship without going to church,” Obi said.

“We have a crisis that we don’t have the resources to manage. The greatest country in the world is America. They are on their knees now healthwise and economically. We should not allow that because we cannot manage it.

“Lock up Nigeria and we will solve our problems from within.”
