President Muhammadu Buhari has extended the lockdown in Lagos, Ogun and therefore the federal capital territory (FCT) by one week.
In a nationwide broadcast on Monday, the president explained that he consulted widely before taking the choice .
He commended Nigerians for the extent of endurance shown throughout the four weeks that the lockdown has lasted.
Buhari advised Nigerians to stick the rules of the presidential task force on COVID-19 and therefore the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
“Based on the above and in line with the recommendations of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, the varied federal committees that have reviewed socio-economic matters and therefore the Nigeria Governors Forum, I even have approved a phased and gradual easing of lockdown measures in FCT, Lagos and Ogun States effective from Monday, 4th May, 2020,” he said.
“However, this may be followed strictly with aggressive reinforcement of testing and get in touch with tracing measures while allowing the restoration of some economic and business activities in certain sectors.”
