COVID-19: What President Buhari Told Nigerians (Full Text)

The lockdown in Lagos, Ogun and the federal capital territory (FCT) has been extended by one week.

President Muhammadu Buhari declared the extension today, in a nationwide broadcast.

Buhari explained that he consulted widely before taking the decision.

He praised Nigerians for their patience and cooperation since the lockdown began four weeks ago.

He further advised Nigerians to adhere the guidelines of the presidential task force on COVID-19 and 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 various Federal Government committees that have reviewed socio-economic matters and the Nigeria Governors Forum, I 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 will be followed strictly with aggressive reinforcement of testing and contact tracing measures while allowing the restoration of some economic and business activities in certain sectors.”
