“The truth is we cannot go back to pre-COVID, pre-lockdown, we’ll have to make some adjustments on how we engage, how we work, pray, relax and so some businesses. All these are difficult decisions that have to be made.

“Until we get vaccines, none of us is alone in this, every country is struggling with this, it is finding a balance between doing the needful and opening the economy so that people can survive, we cannot shut down everything,” he added.

In his remarks, Masari expressed concern that young men from Katsina State, scattered all over Nigeria, especially Lagos, Port Harcourt and Abuja, were returning home avoiding official entry points because of the vastness of the land.
