Oluwo Of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, Telu I, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to consider the reopening of the nation’s Economy

In an open letter to the President and made available to newsmen in Osogbo, Oba Akanbi further urged the President to ensure strict enforcement and severe penalty for COVID-19 rules violators in reopening the economy.

The monarch who said he is not ominous of the danger posed by the virus, however, noted that continuous locking of our economy is an hazard, not only for today but also the future.

He appreciated the efforts of government in the management of the virus. “Nigeria is one of the best countries controllably managing the virus. Royal kudos to his excellency and the COVID-19 taskforce.

“COVID-19 is a leveller. It jumps all barriers- Knows no age, status and influence. The laws should be enforced to know nobody too. If the government can manage the trend like this, we can do better when the economy is reopened by respecting the moral engagements of the virus.

“The economy must be rejigged through the opening of the economy but conditional enforcement and impregnable policies.

“The rules of wearing a mask should be mandated without exclusion. If need be, should be extended to animals to include animals in human skin. Human who refuses to wear should be meted with animalistic treatment.

“I suggest billboards across the nation mandating and cautioning Nigeria residents on the use of facemask. This will further give no one an excuse of ignorance for the full wrath of the law. I’m ready yo complement this move in my own little capacity as a paramount ruler.

He advised the President Buhari on the need to domesticate a moral slogan as done in 1984 through War Against COVID-19.
