Bankole Wellington, a Nigerian entertainer and politician better known as Banky W, has confronted some of the governors who relaxed the lockdown order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic during Easter celebrations.

Previously the Gazette Nigeria addressed how many states changed the new lockdown order to allow Christians to celebrate Easter — an annual festival commemorating the crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Reacting to the report, the 39-year-old showbiz mogul wondered why these state governors would take such actions when the country has continued to see increased cases of the novel disease.



“So for the state governors that have suspended isolation and social distancing for Easter… Do they have an agreement with the coronavirus that it will also go on Easter break as well? These our ‘leaders,” he wrote in a mixture of English and Pidgin on Instagram.


His statement comes in at the same time when former Anambra state governor Peter Obi criticized the notion of easing lockdowns for Easter celebrations.

“It is wrong to relax lockdown because of people going to church. Faith is a thing of the mind. You can worship without going to church,” Obi had said on Friday, during an Arise Television programme.
