As a way to curb the spread of COVID-19 aka Coronavirus, President Muhammadu Buhari has announced that there will be a lockdown and a restriction on movements in states with the highest number of coronavirus cases; Lagos, Abuja, and Ogun.

Even though certain things have been put on hold during this time, there are still things that haven’t been paused, like bills. Paying important bills like electricity, internet etc will prove to be a hassle this period. However, we’re here with a way to make things easier.

1) Airtime

How to transfer airtime credit on MTN, Airtel 9mobile & Glo

It’s safe to say that your neighborhood credit guy/girl isn’t going to want to risk getting infected or getting bodied by police so they’re not going to be at their usual spot this period. Top up your airtime using PAGA.

2) Internet
