Funke Akindele says the past few weeks have been a ‘learning curve’ for her.
Recall that the actress and her husband JJC were sentenced to community service and fined for flouting the Lagos lock down rules, which were put in place by the government to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
In a video shared via her Instagram page on Sunday, April 19, 2020, the actress thanked everyone for the love and support so far.
“Thank you for all the love, support, feedbacks and calls, I really appreciate. These past few weeks has been a learning curve but we must keep moving forward,” she said.
“My dear friends, coronavirus is really. We all must continue to collaborate with the Lagos state government and the federal government by staying at home.”
The actress went to hammer on the need for Nigerians to practise social distancing and good hygiene during this period.
Akindele thanked all the health workers who have been on the frontline of the pandemic since it’s emergence and paid condolence to the families of those who have lost loved ones as a result of the disease.
