COVID – 19: Another Lockdown Looms – FG


The Federal Government has confirmed that another total lockdown across Nigeria is imminent if Nigerians do not change their attitude in the coming days.

The Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce PTF on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Mr. Boss Mustapha, who confirmed this, said lockdowns might not be popular but what would happen in the preceding weeks would  determine,

He, however, said the Taskforce would do everything within its mandate to ensure the safety and well-being of the people of Nigeria.

“If that would require a recommendation of a lockdown, this Taskforce will not shy away from its responsibilities. We will take that decision.

“We will make our recommendations to Mr. President who will finally decide but we would first take a decision on our side as members of this Taskforce within the context of the mandate that has been given to us and make that recommendation. But such a decision or advice being taken now would be speculative.

“What would happen in the next two to three weeks would determine what would eventually be our recommendation”, Mustapha said.
