The Federal Government has announced an extension of the current partial lockdown of the country for another 2 weeks, emphasizing that it is too early for it to relax its containment protocols against the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce PTF on Covid-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Mr Boss Mustapha announced this in Abuja Monday, while giving its daily briefing of the Taskforce.
He said; “the reality is that in spite of the modest progress made, Nigeria is not yet ready for full opening of the economy and tough decisions have to be taken for the good of the greater majority. Any relaxation will only forespell rave danger for our populace. Advisedly, the current phase of eased restriction will be maintained for another two weeks during which stricter enforcement and persuasion measures will be pursued”.
