This was made known by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on the pandemic, Boss Mustapha.

Odunews.com reports that state Goveronors had suggested a two-week national lockdown as part of measures to fight the COVID-19 in the country.

Mustapha, speaking at the daily briefing on Thursday, said every input including that of the governors would be collated by the committee and a report will be written and submitted to the President.

“Basically, what they are suggesting is that travel from one state to the other should be stopped with certain exemptions of essential services, petroleum products, farm inputs, fertilizer so that we can keep the wheel of our economy ready.

“Like I said, that is their proposal, the federal government is yet to make a decision and, as to whether that will be part of our report, the presidential task force will meet and take a holistic look at all the proposals that are coming in as to the next line of action going forward.

“This will not be taken in isolation; and so I want to assure you that we are working in synergy and collaboratively with the state governments and subnational entities that, with this phase going into the third phase, it will be more collaborative than we would have taken into consideration the inputs and interests of different segments of our society,” Mustapha said.
