President Buhari to meet with Task force on covid-19 today on whether to extend lockdown to other parts of Nigeria

Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari, will today (Friday) meet with the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 over the lockdown imposed on the Federal Capital Territory, Lagos and Ogun states. The lockdown was imposed two weeks ago as part of efforts to curb the the spread of the covid-19 virus which was growing in the affected states. The PUNCH gathered that the task force would brief the President on the war against COVID-19 and the possibility of extending the two-week lockdown in the FCT, Ogun and Lagos states as well as including other parts of the country.

Two top government officials confirmed to The PUNCH on Thursday that the task force would brief the President on Friday (today).
