Former Kaduna Lawmaker, Shehu Sani has reacted to the varying punishments from the federal government on citizens who violate the stay-at-home order.

He said the poor did not bring Covid-19 into the country and so should not be convicted over the lockdown violation as there are more lenient ways to punish them.

He further condemned the method in which the government has adopted to identify beneficiaries of the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) scheme.
“In a country where the minimum wage is officially 30k;to deny a citizen 5k because he has 5k in his account under lockdown with no end in sight is illogical and irrational, he wrote on a tweet via his twitter handle.

“The Poor can be accused of many things, but the poor did not ‘import’ #COVID-19 into our country; Stop killing or convicting them over lockdown violations.

“There should be a more civilized and lenient way of ‘punishing the innocent,” his tweet added.
