– FG to announce the next phase of eased lockdown in Nigeria.
– Presidential task force on COVID-19 submits report to presidency.
– Nigeria likely to experience another lockdown.
It is no news that the eased COVID-19 lockdown by the president is just a trial ease and thus, the probability of the federal government declaring another lockdown across the country.
Another reason for the possibility of another phase of lockdow across the country is the incessant increase in the number of daily COVID-19 confirmed cases.
In our earlier report, Nigeria News reported that the chairman of the presidential task force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha said he would’ve declared another lockdown if he had the power.
Mustapha argued that Nigerians are playing love with coronavirus, pretending as if the virus does not exist, while it’s still very much out there and killing.
The eased lockdown which was initially scheduled for a period of two weeks, in which we are in it’s fourth week, the second phase, will elapse today and Nigerians are anticipating the government’s decision.
Today, the presidential task force on COVID-19 which was led by the Secretary to the Federal Government, Boss Mustapha submitted their reports and recommendations after the second phase of the eased lockdown.
While addressing the press after meeting with president Buhari at the Aso villa, Boss Mustapha made it known that president Buhari will make the final decision on the next phase tomorrow.
Moreso, the personal assistant on media to president Buhari, Bashir Ahmad, tweeted on the afternoon of Monday via his Twitter handle, he wrote;
“Today is the last day of Nigeria’s phase II of the eased lockdown, members of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefed and submitted their recommendations to the President for approval, the next lines of action will be announced tomorrow, SGF Boss Mustapha discloses.”
As the next decision is yet unknown, Nigerians are in high anticipation of the federal Government’s decision whether there will be a fresh lockdown or to continue and blend with COVID-19 pandemic.
