The Federal Government has confirmed that another total lockdown across Nigeria looms if Nigerians don’t change their attitude in the coming days.
This was confirmed by the Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce PTF on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Mr. Boss Mustapha.
COVID-19: Another lockdown looms if… — PTF Chairman
“As to whether we would advise Mr. President to consider another lockdown, I have said it here that lockdowns might not be popular but what will happen in the preceding weeks will determine,” he said.
“I believe as the days and weeks ahead would present, I will not be speculative as to what would happen in the future, but we will do everything within our mandate to ensure the safety and the protection of the well-being of the people of Nigeria.
“If that would require a recommendation of a lockdown, this Taskforce will not shy away from its responsibilities. We will take that decision.
“We will make our recommendations to Mr. President who will finally decide but we would first take a decision on our side as members of this Taskforce within the context of the mandate that has been given to us and make that recommendation. But such a decision or advice being taken now would be speculative.
“What would happen in the next two to three weeks would determine what would eventually be our recommendation.”
