What President Buhari Said After Meeting COVID-19 Task Force

President Muhammadu Buhari says the Presidential Task Force on Control of COVID-19 has briefed him on the outbreak of Coronavirus in Nigeria.

Naija News reports that the President made this statement on Friday evening after meeting the Presidential Task Force on Control of COVID-19 at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

Although President Buhari said the Presidential Task Force briefed him on the outbreak of Coronavirus in Nigeria, he, however, failed to mention if the 14-day lockdown imposed on Abuja, Lagos and Ogun State would be extended.

This online news platform recalls that President Buhari declared a total lockdown in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun on 29 March, with a view to curtailing the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The initial 14-day lockdown, which kicked off March 30th, ends Monday, April 13.

Speaking after a meeting with the COVID-19 Task Force, the President said: “The Presidential Task Force on Control of COVID-19 briefed me today. I remain very grateful for the hard work that they are putting into this national assignment. I have no doubt that with all these efforts, Nigeria will triumph over this pandemic,” the Nigerians leader added.

Meanwhile, Naija News recalls that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and chairman of the task force, Boss Mustapha, had said that the task force would meet with Buhari to review the lockdown.

Others at Friday’s meeting included the Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu; the National Coordinator in the fight against COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu and the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire.
