Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday rallied Nigerians not to be afraid or despair in the face of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. He exhorted them to wake up to their responsibility and be courageous and exhibit faith.

In a short statement posted on his FaceBook page with his customary GEJ signature, the former leader wrote:

“Today our world faces a global crisis that threatens our peace, hope, and freedoms. Across the globe is the climate of fear, havoc, and consequences of a new enemy, Coronavirus Disease - COVID-19.

“Dear Compatriot, this is not a time to fear or despair; it is a moment of responsibility, courage and faith. It is time to demonstrate good citizenship by yielding to relevant policies and guidelines put in place by government and its agencies to combat the challenge of COVID- 19.

“As a country, ours is a history of many triumphs in times of global and national challenges.In 2014, through solidarity and unity of purpose, we combated the dreaded Ebola virus.

“More than ever before, now is the time for action, solidarity and patriotism. Let's all brace up and work together to combat this new scourge COVID-19.

GEJ”, he wrote.

As at the time of this report, the country has officially declared 51 cases of infection with one death and two discharged. It was also reported on Thursday morning that another batch of six were ready to be discharged in Lagos.
