Lawyers across the country have commended Dr Babatunde Ajibade for his information service on the Covid-19 pandemic.

The proliferation of unverified information has been a problem across the globe in dealing with the pandemic.

Dr Ajibade has taken the lead to ensure that Lawyers receive correct information from authentic sources like the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Nigerian Center for Disease Control regarding the Covid-19 pandemic.

In his statement on Tuesday,he stated thus:

Dear Colleagues,

My last email to you was on the 1st day of January, 2020. It was a call for us to unite in saving our profession. Today, we are faced with a far greater challenge – saving our lives.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is at our doorstep. Various levels and arms of government are taking steps to stop the spread of the deadly virus. Various businesses and plans have been put on hold. We are all faced with a new reality. A reality in which social-distancing, isolation and quarantine are now buzz words.

In the midst of all these, we are fed with different forms of information, some true and others not. We can already see negative effects of misinformation with some persons reporting to the hospitals over poisoning.

I hold the view that we all need to have a place to source for authentic information on the virus. To this end, I have dedicated a page on my website to providing links to verified information from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on Coronavirus. This way, we can help reduce the spread of fake news.

The link is provided below.

I am not a medical practitioner so I cannot claim to give you medical advice. What I can do, as a colleague, is to help ensure that we all have access to the right information from credible sources.

I believe that if we all play our own small parts, the virus will be defeated soon.

Let’s do better.

Dr. Babatunde Ajibade, SAN, FCIArb
