The global health crises hit the world by surprise with its devastating effect on social, economic and political sphere, where not seeing friends and family becomes an act of kindness and love, hugs and kisses sadly becomes a weapon of war not a way of expressing love, personal hygiene becomes our daily routine as it is the the only way out of the situation. The pandemic makes humanity to realise that wealth and power are nothing but worldly achievement and not worth fighting for. Daily bread was never a priority, survival became pertinent. The popular saying that health is wealth we largely affirmed by this strange visitor that has come to shape the world.
Nigeria wasn’t an exception in the heat of the virus we also have our own burden to carry

Sani Anuhi Covid19 experience
Traveling to collect my national youth service certificate during the lockdown is one stressful journey I won’t even pray for my journey to embark on, there was unnecessary delay due to check point and travel restriction. It was so disheartening to see how our military and paramilitary are extorting the drivers and passengers, the military and paramilitary personnel are so corrupt this just affirm that not just politicians are corrupt.
The hope and aspirations to graduate from law school was second to non but that dream was short-lived as we were asked to evacuate from school due to covid19, but it also give me opportunity to start my own business which is something I have always craved for. I have been financially independent as I don’t need to always ask for money from parent and elderly ones.
Covid19 time to relax from school stress but I really want to go back to school I have had enough rest.
The pandemic also gave me the opportunity to have time for my children, before the pandemic I had no time for the kids because of my daily struggle to put food on the table.
