- targets 2m tests in three months
The coronavirus pandemic is already changing Nigerians life in ways that will far outlast the pandemic itself, for better and for worse.
The Federal Government Tuesday urged Nigerians to be prepared to adapt permanently to the new ways of living that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic has forced on the human race.
Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 Pandemic, Boss Mustapha, said this during the daily media briefing by the task force in Abuja.
“Let me at this point inform you that the lockdown for FCT, Lagos and Ogun States shall remain in force till Midnight of Sunday 3rd May, 2020 after which the new regime of measures shall take effect. Law enforcement agencies shall therefore continue to enforce the restriction of movements.
“The PTF also implore Nigerians to please continue to adhere to the restriction orders.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the relaxation of the lockdown is to enable us gradually return to our daily lives but in a moderated manner. The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently altered our ways of life and we must begin to learn how to adjust to this new reality.
“This relaxation does not in any way imply that the danger has passed. The virus is still potent, virulent and dangerous. We must remain very vigilant and careful. We must take responsibility for our actions. We must commit to a collective victory over COVID-19”, he said.
