The Federal Government has announced another 14 days extension of the current partial lockdown of the country, saying the time is not ripe for its relaxation against the COVID-19 pandemic.
This was made known by the Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce (PTF) on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation(SGF),Boss Mustapha on Monday in Abuja during the 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 portend grave 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”.
