Super Falcons forward, Desire Oparanozie, has raised concerns over her country's unreadiness to combat the novel coronavirus.
With the number of cases in the country increasing on a daily basis, the striker has warned her compatriots to follow the stay at home instruction that has been given in some parts of the country.
The former captain of the Nigerian women's national team says it is best to be home and be safe, as the government would most likely only cater to the ‘rich and influential.’
“I've been advising us to stay at home. Considering the kind of system we have (incompetent government). We can't fight this virus if it hits hard on us. Obviously the rich and influential will be attended to before anyone else. Save yourselves people,” she wrote on Twitter.
The coronavirus has caused a major disturbance in the world, disrupting several activities across the globe.
As at the last update, Nigeria had recorded 111 confirmed cases, with Lagos being the worse-hit with 68 cases, causing the state to be placed on lockdown. Abuja and Ogun have also been locked down.
