A Nigerian man who recently tested positive for Coronavirus and is receiving treatment in a UK hospital, has appealed to Nigerians to take the pandemic seriously and follow all guidelines issued by the government to curtail the spread of the dreaded disease.

In a post shared on Twitter, the Nigerian man said this is not the time to bash the President for the lockdown order as everything is being done for the betterment of everyone.

”Nigerians this is not the time to bash the president @MBuhari on lockdown. Everything the government is doing is for the betterment of every citizen in the country. For the past 13 days I have not known food and my main concern is to survive this deadly virus.

My test just came back positive for Covid19 and i can tell you that it is real. I am being looked after by amazing staffs of the NHS and they are doing a wonderful job.

We are at war fighting an invisible enemy, everyone needs to join hands together to defeat the common enemy. Please follow all government and NCDC advice and guidelines. Hunger that has hope can never kill you. Always maintain social distancing, wash your hands and sanitise.” he tweeted

In another tweet, he expressed his fears of infecting his little baby.

” Nigerians it’s only an advice to stay safe. I will be devastated if I infect my little baby with this virus. I hard doing it intentionally talk more of infecting her because I was only worried the @MBuhari is not sharing money. This is someone’s father and it’s real.”
