Due to the increase in the number of cases across the country, it is important for Nigerians to strictly adhere to the #StayAtHome and #LockDown policy implemented by the government. This is for the good of all Nigerians to reduce the spread of the virus and protect themselves and their family. #Staysafe adheres to #PersonalHygiene at home.
