Meanwhile, as Lagos state considers full re-opening of the economy, the government is intensifying the distribution of face masks to residents in 57 LGAs/LCDAs.

Popular Fuji musician, Pasuma and comedian Owen Gee supported the Maskup Lagos. They shared the Lagos government's free face masks in the Ikeja and Mushin areas of the state.

This was disclosed in a tweet shared on the official Twitter handle of the Lagos state government.

In another report, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals in Kaduna have been deserted by health workers over to over threat of deducting 25 % of their salaries by the state government.

Medical personnel in Kaduna have called on the government to reverse its decision to go ahead with the deduction, but to no avail, hence the strike.

Speaking with journalists on Saturday, May 23, Dr Steven Kache, the state's chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) opined that the request of the workers is logical, adding that the situation is quite unfortunate.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Kaduna state government had threatened to sack any health worker who fails to show up at their assigned places of work, saying the government would view such action by health workers as having forfeited their employment.

The state government, in response to a strike notice by health workers over the state’s deductions of 25% from the salaries of all civil servants, said it would not bend to blackmail and instructed that every health worker willing to work is required to sign the register at the ministry of health and the health institutions to which they were deployed.
