We do not have any other means of livelihood. My wife is a nursing mother and everything depends on me. Why are we treated like we are not vulnerable or that we are not important at all. The lock down is bitting us, now payment till next week. This is a huge disaster to me and my family.

E be like say this people don dey punish us oo for what we don't know. Why all these delay na. I don't understand what this new Ministry mean for us oo. God help us ooo.
