COVID-19: FG to release new directives on movement, communities



CHAIRMAN of Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha yesterday said new regulations, based on the task force’s recommendations, will be released today.

  He said this while briefing newsmen after he submitted the interim report on the current state of lockdown and recommendations to President Muhammadu Buhari.

  Mustapha stated that this will be done as soon as Buhari gives his approval.

  According to him, President Buhari was happy with the content of the report and the work the PTF was doing, stressing that all the members are committed and have exhibited the highest form of professionalism in dealing with the affairs.

  “PTF will focus on three thematic areas in contending further the spread of the virus. It will be premature for me to talk about it, because we submitted a report; we have submitted recommendations and so we have to leave for Mr. President to take a decision. By the time I receive his approvals on the recommendations we have made, we will be able to speak to the Nigerian people tomorrow(Thursday). But I can give you a little bit of an insight as to where we are going. And that is informed by three thematic areas. One has to deal with movement, two has to deal with labour and industries and three has to do with communities’ activities. These are already three thematic areas that our recommendations would be driven by; what will happen in these three basic areas going forward. We are conscious of our recommendations,” he said.
