Practice social distancing, stay at home, Funke Akindele tells Nigerians

Actress Funke Akindele also known as Jenifa has urged Nigerians to adhere to the Social Distance rule of the government which is aimed at containing the spread of the COVID-19.

The popular actress who was earlier prosecuted by the Lagos State government for hosting a party in contravention of the government-ordered lockdown to curtail the spread of coronavirus.

A Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Ogba had sentenced the celebrity couple to 14-day community service and also imposed a fine of N100,000 each on the husband and wife.

In a sensitization video released on Sunday via her Social Media platforms, Jenifa said, “These past few weeks have been a learning curve but we must keep moving forward.

“My dear friends, coronavirus is real. We must collaborate with the Lagos State Government and the Federal Government by staying at home, staying safe.

“We must ensure we wash our hands regularly and stay safe so as to contain the spread of the virus.

“A lot of us are so used to ourselves or trusted group of friends that we forget to practise social distancing but trust me, it is very important this period. Social distancing will help to contain the spread of COVID-19. Prevention is better than cure.

“My heart goes out to all those who had lost a loved one to this. May their souls rest in peace. And to our health workers at the frontline, we can’t thank you enough. I pray that this pandemic will end soon.
