He urged Nigerians to be conscious and take seriously the need for total compliance to the lockdown order in order to contain the spread of Coronavirus.
His post reads, “Stay indoors, we have moved from 300 plus to 400 plus in 24 hours.
“All these governors that were lifting restrictions should get ready now.
“Lagos State must be firm like the Rivers government did.”

Stay indoors... we have moved from 300 plus to 400 plus in 24 hours. _ All those governors that were lifting restrictions... should get ready ooo. _ And this is when I will tell Lagos state to be firm like Rivers State government. If any pilot flies a plane into your state in the lockdown... lock him up. It's a lockdown for a reason. _
Addressing a press conference in Port Harcourt, the state capital, on Friday, Wike alleged that federal authorities are working to compromise the health protection system of the state and make it vulnerable to coronavirus.
The governor said his administration has established the right legal framework to assist in fighting against the spread of the disease.
“Some people want the escalation of the virus in Rivers State. People were paid to canvass a negative narrative on Carveton Pilots,” Wike said.
