Super Eagles legend Nwankwo Kanu has reminded Nigerians the need for them to take coronavirus serious considering the pains and hardship it has brought to the world.
For more than six months now, the whole world has been battling to cope with the deadly virus which originated from China before spreading across other nations.
Kanu who is known for his great generosity gathered some Nigerians in a house in which he lectured them the importance of staying safe.
While speaking with them, the former Arsenal star stated that people must not forget to be washing their hands regularly and also be covering their noses.
He also told them emphatically that they should not not join the bandwagon of some people who are claiming that Covid-19 is a scam in Nigeria.
''I want to tell you all that Covid-19 is real and I want you to follow all the precautions so as not to contract the virus which is troubling the country.
''It is a must for you all to maintain social distance and make sure that you wash your hands regularly so as not to contract the virus,'' Kanu explained while speaking.
After finishing his lecture on the need for people to stay safe, Kanu Nwankwo then distributed envelopes, one bag of rice and one carton of Indomie each to all the people he spoke with.
They were all in joy mood while listening to the Nigerian football legend.
