Afenifere has described the ongoing registration of Sim cards in the midst of the strong second wave of COVID-19 as the most irresponsible act of governance on display in the history of this unfortunate country.
It says it shows total disregard for the lives of citizens to expose them to the vagaries of coronavirus without any form of protection under these terrible conditions.
Officials of the National Identity Management Commission who are currently on strike have also complained that they have not been provided and personal protective equipment and their allowances are not being paid.
It is so barbaric and archaic that Nigerians are being exposed to these dangers which shows lack of critical thinking in leadership when bodies like Google etc can manage whatever information on people’s phones without having any contact with the owners. (Tribune)
