"Dear President @MBuhari Pls provide an economic relief package for Nigerians, even if it's 50k each, it will go a long way. People are hungry, locked down with no money, begging left, right & center. With a situation like this, it'll be difficult to keep people at home," he tweeted.

Edochie's tweets are coming barely 24 hours after the President had addressed the nation in a broadcast.

In his broadcast, Buhari announced that Abuja, Lagos and Ogun states will be shut down for two weeks to help track the increase of the virus.
