COVID-19: There Is Danger Ahead – FG Warns Nigerians

The federal government has again expressed its displeasure, over the continued disregard of the eased lockdown guidelines by Nigerians.

Speaking at the daily briefing on Wednesday, the chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, said it portends danger for the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on April 27, announced the phased and gradual easing of the lockdown would start from Monday, May 4.

Buhari also imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew nationwide.

However, the government had said that its overall assessment of compliance with the measures, leaves a lot to be desired.

Mustapha said: “The overall assessment of compliance with the measures and outcomes of modelling we have developed, point in the direction of danger ahead. We therefore need personal discipline, increased awareness and enforcement.

“I want to reiterate the fact that our individual and collective safety is in our hands and I re-echo my call and appeal to Nigerians to demonstrate our duty to ourselves and loved ones by minimising the risk of getting infected by the virus.”
