The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 had said just extended for 2 weeks the gradual easing of the lockdown in Lagos, Ogun, and Abuja to curb spread of Coronavirus.
Chairman of the PTF on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, who is also the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, while making the announcement said,
“Advisedly, the current phase of eased restriction will be maintained for another two weeks during which stricter enforcement and persuasion measures will be pursued.
“The two weeks extension of Phase One of the eased restriction is also to enable other segments of the economy to prepare adequately for compliance with the guidelines, preparatory to reopening in the coming weeks.”
