I'm lonely, I feel the need for a man's company, Actress Uche Elendu says

Due to the coronavirus pandemic spreading across states in Nigeria, the federal government in order to curb the disease issued a directive that everyone stays at home.

However, single mother of two, Nollywood actress Uche Elendu has bewailed her loneliness revealing that she can’t seem to cope with the staying at home policy as it is not easy for her.

She said: “It is not easy not being married and also not having a man of my own. But I have kids who keep me company the whole of my time. I interact with them, take care of them and teach them.

As an entrepreneur, I am also making research and relating with my client. I feel the need to be in the company of a man on rare occasions.

I don’t really feel bad because I am single. I know I would be in the right relationship when the time comes.”

The movie star also expressed worries after learning that one of her colleagues who attended the recently held African Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) tested positive for coronavirus.

“I was scared stiff when I heard about it.

There were lots of people at that event, so it is expected that there would be an exchange of pleasantries, hugging, handshaking, pecking and all.

I am really praying that the person that tested positive didn’t spread the virus to other people. If not, it would be a very tragic situation.

I hope that at the time he was at the AMVCA, the virus wasn’t strong enough to be transmitted, because lots of people had mingled with family members, friends and more.

After the awards, everyone went about their respective businesses. It is really a sad situation, but I am very hopeful.”

The Chairman of the Imo State Council of Traditional Rulers told the Federal Government on Sunday to extend the current lockdown as the total number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Nigeria nears the 10,000 mark.

Eze Samuel Ohiri made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, saying the lockdown extension was necessary to avert the rapid spread of the deadly virus in rural communities.

Nigeria has currently recorded 9,855 confirmed cases of the virus, 553 of which were recorded in the past 24 hours.

Two hundred and seventy-five deaths have also been recorded with 2,856 people discharged after recovering from the disease, according to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

On March 4, President Muhammadu Buhari announced a nationwide lockdown to check the spread of the virus and extended the lockdown on May 4.

Ohiri, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Hi-Tech Diagnostics Ltd., noted that the lockdown had isolated the deadly virus to only metropolitan areas.

“Any plan to relax the lockdown at this time is not advisable because it will trigger community transmission from the metropolitan areas to rural areas.

“Nigeria at the moment has lost over 200 lives to COVID-19 and we cannot afford to lose more. So let government not relax the lockdown for now.”

The monarch also lauded the Federal Government’s efforts so far in containing the virus, urging State Governments to sustain the restriction on inter-state movements.

According to him, as soon the lockdown is lifted, inter-state movements will commence and community transmission will set in.

“A country like Ghana recorded unprecedented 60 per cent increase in COVID-19 infections after relaxing their lockdown.

“This disease is very deadly that even the survivors still suffer damage of one organ or the order, especially the lungs.”

The royal father, however, described speculations of conspiracy theory on COVID-19 as unfounded rumours, saying that proper education was required to prepare people against the virus.
