The Nigerian government, on Thursday, extended the second phase of the COVID-19 eased lockdown by another four weeks.

 

This extension is the third for the second phase of lockdown currently observed across Nigeria.

 

The extension was disclosed by Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, during the daily briefing of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 in Abuja.

 

Under the revised guidelines of the eased lockdown, which will be maintained in the next four weeks, the current nationwide curfew from 10 pm- 6 am still stands.

 

Recall that the task force had met with President Buhari on Wednesday and briefed him on the progress made so far in curbing the spread of COVID-19 and keeping citizens safe from contracting the virus.


“I’m pleased to inform you that Mr. President has carefully considered the 5th Interim Report of the PTF and has accordingly approved that, with the exception of some modifications to expatiate upon later, the Phase Two of the eased lockdown be extended by another 4 weeks with effect from Tuesday, June 30, 2020, through Midnight of Monday, July 27, 2020,” he said.
