FG appeals to Nigerians to comply with restrictions order

Boss Mustapha

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Tuesday appealed to Nigerians to respect and honour restrictions that have been imposed for the good of the nation.

It added that members have met with security chiefs in the country regarding the review of the protocols for implementing the 14-day lockdown in Lagos, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The Chairman of the task force and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, who spoke during a live Presidential Task Force briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja on Tuesday, reiterated that the lockdown was for the benefit of the country and its citizens.

Mustapha said, “The presidential task force has met with the security chiefs to smoothen rough edges of implementation within the first day of implementation and we are working on issuing an appropriate restriction protocol and exemption guidelines, which will guide the subsequent days of restrictions.

“Initial feedback is that there is substantial compliance but, however, there are violations of those restrictions by citizens that we desire to protect. Let me emphasize that the decision to lock down is to prevent community spread which might be dangerous to manage.
