The Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government has asked banks to open all their branches.

This was stated by Dr. Sani Aliyu, National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, during Thursday’s media briefing.

He also announced President Buhari’s decision to extend the eased lockdown by another four weeks.
