Since the first case of the COVID-19 virus was reported in Nigeria, its outbreak has evidently propelled a huge disruption in individual routine and given rise to a national economic downtime.


A popular feature of the economic downtime is the loss of jobs and pay cuts across various industries including aviation, health, finance, agro-allied as well as the Nigerian media industry.


The informal sector have suffered nonetheless. No doubt we have put up a good fight, no way would we let the menace sweep us off our feets, we have battled hard, harder than the fist of kratos, we have held stronger than the shoulders of Hercules and our losses cuts deeper than the depth of hades but right now we need to "Calm down" for our labour shall not be in vain, "Calm down" so the enemy shall once be defeated, "Calm down" for the love of our family and friends.


Why don't we just "Calm down" so our problems be solved and our tears washed away. No doubt we are never yielding, our spirit unbroken, our faith unending but right now we have to wear a different armour of protection and wield a different sword of war.

Right now we need to "Calm down" so I'm taking this chance to plead with all my fellow Nigerians, my Muslim brothers and sisters to "Calm Down."

 Let's "Calm Down" in our celebrations and not abandon our approach to defeating the enemy that is the Covid-19 pandemic.

 Let's "Calm down" and continue to strictly adhere to all precautionary measures to keep ourselves and our families safe.

Let's please "Calm down" so that our children can go back to school, our economy rejuvenated, our health sector, relieved.

Let's "Calm down" so fear no longer remain the new normal.

Lastly as we celebrate, let's "Calm down" to fight Covid-19, to stop corruption, sexual and gender based violence and Injustice.
