Speaking via his official Twitter handle on Tuesday, he emphasized that electricity remains the major thing that should be provided to the larger populace.

He wrote in full:

Dear @MBuhari @ProfOsinbajo @NGRPresident @NGRSenate

I know everything can not be solved in one day, but there a few decisions you can take that can help ease the hardship and frustration that the people are facing.
1. Provide electricity
2. Suspend electricity

billing for the months of the #lockdown especially since no money is coming in, how can they pay it?
3. Deploy 1 or 2 @PoliceNG pick ups to stay permanently at areas with the highest crime rates.
4. Use nepa data base to share relief packages, cos every house gets monthly bills.

5. Immediate & public prosecution should be taken against parties not sharing relief packages like they are supposed to.
6. Anybody caught embezzling funds needed to fight #COVID19 should be treated as an enemy of the state & charged with treason.

These are just my little 2cents

People are really suffering and I am afraid of positive moves directed at the masses are not made, the crime and covid infection rate will increase.

God bless Nigeria.
