Task Force to issue fresh shutdown warn prominent leaders
The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 complained about the rising rate of COVID-19 outbreaks among people in government, saying it was directly affecting governance and security in the country.
Boss Mustapha, who is the PTF Chairman and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, said the likelihood of requesting a fresh total lockdown to lessen the further spread of the Pandemic could not be ruled out.
The SGF, who expressed this at the task force press briefing in Abuja on Monday also warned notable Nigerians to adopt COVID-19 policies seriously adding that the coronavirus does not recognize status.
The indication was reached amid increasing cases of COVID-19 among state governors and other prominent Nigerians. Recently state governors, including David Umahi of Ebonyi, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, and their Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu, contracted the virus.
In his words,“Of recent, we have witnessed a high rate of positive cases especially among people in authority. This has a direct impact on the governance and security of our nation. We urge that vigilance and care should be exhibited by all Nigerians, irrespective of status. This virus does not discriminate and the PTF shall keep sustaining its sensitisation messaging.”
