ENVISAGED AFTERMATH OF COVID-19 – AHMED HASSANAH

new COVID-19 Variants

Envisioning the aftermaths of Covid-19 is key in ensuring the changes are for the better.

Covid-19 pandemic has made over one-quarter of the world’s population confined to their homes at the moment and these measures are disrupting economies, resulting in job losses.

There is global recession especially because most nations and economies have slid into recession because of the huge negative impacts of the pandemic. Borders have been shut down, schools cancelled, and businesses have been put on a halt which makes a lot of things unpredictable.

I envisage that there would be:

IMPROVEMENT IN HEALTHCARE.

There are bound to be calls for action because our healthcare system has never been hit with a health emergency of this magnitude in over a century. The aftermaths of Covid-19 will make people see a reason to demand for proper universal healthcare.

SOLID GLOBAL TRADE.

The pandemic is displaying how dependent we all are on the supply chain globally. The economic cost is enormous when global trade slows down. When the pandemic is over, global trade will resume and become stronger and any other disruption would be temporary.

THE TECH WORLD WOULD BE FIRMER.

Technology is helping us survive through the Covid-19 pandemic. We now have access to the world from the comfort of our homes.

However, one of the aftermaths of covid-19 would be that technology will be universal as it is already if not more. Tech firms will become more powerful.

LIFESTYLE CHANGES TO PRACTICE BETTER HYGIENE.

People will now be more aware of how important hygiene is. We are going to remember to cover our mouths when we cough, sanitize our hands after touching anything because we know what can happen if we don’t.

In conclusion,this experience will help us change a lot of things for the better.

Obi in a statement dated Dec. 17 and entitled: “Update on Suspension of Igwes in Anambra’’ said the governor acted according to the powers vested on him by the Anambra State Traditional Rulers Law, 2007.

He gave the names of the traditional rulers who had their certificates withdrawn as, Igwe Chijioke Nwankwo of Nawfia Town, Igwe Anthony Onyekwere of Owelle and Igwe G. B. C. Mbakwe of Abacha.
The governor announced the lifting of suspension on five traditional rulers including , Igwe Simon Chidibem of Umumbo, Igwe A. N. Onwuneme of Ikenga, Igwe Mark Anthony Okonkwo of Alor, Igwe Chukwuma Orji of Ezinifite and Igwe S.O. Obiora of Ezira.

Obi said all the affected traditional rulers have one month to submit the certificates of recognition to the Secretary of the Local Government of their communities from the day of the announcement.

Recall that the Anambra government on August 11, 2020 suspended 12 traditional rulers for alleged gross misconduct.

According to Obi who announced the suspension, during the sanction period, the suspended traditional rulers are required to stop holding court as traditional rulers and to desist from discharging traditional rulers’ functions in their communities or anywhere in the state and beyond.
