Cross River state governor, Professor Ben Ayade has warned that any further extension of lockdown of the country in response to the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic will spell doom for the country.
He said any further extension of the lockdown will give rise as to uncontrollable youth restiveness, adding that it was better to lockout than lockdown.
The governor spoke Tuesday at the Industrial Park, Calabar.
Professor Ayade said the recruitment of 8000 youths was targeted at avoiding social tension in view of the harsh economic impact created by COVID 19.
