Lizzy Anjorin, a super rich actress and serial businesswoman, has pleaded with Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, Lagos State Governor, not to shut down businesses, indicating that poverty is more deadly than COVID-19.
The actress made this known via her social media page, where she pleaded with the governor to remember the masses, considering their socio-economic status, as things are very difficult for all.
Lizzy also said that if another constraint were imposed on businesses, it may incite unavoidable chaos.
“Mr Governor, I have a special message for you. You said, there’s a second wave of coronavirus and all that, I beg you in the name of all almighty Allah, let people go and do their businesses. Please, release them. Poverty is more deadly than coronavirus. People are hungry. I don’t know maybe you have neighbours, I don’t know if you mix up with people. But, Mr governor, things are hard for everybody, both the rich and the middle class. So a situation whereby you lock people down with again, they won’t come with #endsars again, they would go and reform and come back to strike bringing everything down before your eye.”
