Govts face the challenge of keeping citizens safe from poverty, hunger, depression as a result of inactivity – Keyamo
The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN), has noted that the challenge that soon will face governments around the world is how to keep their citizens safe from COVID-19 and at the same time how to keep them safe from poverty, hunger and depression as a result of the inactivity.
He also asked that individuals be allowed to vent their opinions freely with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Keyamo who took to Twitter also said the people must be allowed to vent their opinions because it is a sign of the times.
His tweet reads:
“The preponderance of opinions in countries around the world is that majority of citizens are blaming their governments for not doing enough to curb COVID-19. We must be tolerant and allow people vent their opinions. It’s a sign of the times. The grass is always greener on the other side”.
“The challenge that’ll soon face governments around the world is how to keep their citizens safe from COVID-19 by imposing inactivity and at the same time how to keep them safe from poverty, hunger and depression as a result of the inactivity. It’s a decision between the rock and a hard place.”
