COVID-19: Movement Restrictions In 2 States’, FCT Extended By Nigeria Government

Unic Press UK: Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari, said in a national broadcast Monday that his administration has decided to extend the lockdown in Lagos State, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, and Ogun State, in the hope that the spread of COVID-19, an infectious disease, would be massively curtailed.

Our approach to the virus remains in 2 steps – First, to protect the lives of our fellow Nigerians and residents living here and second, to preserve the livelihoods of workers and business owners. With this in mind and having carefully considered the briefings and Report from the Presidential Task Force and the various options offered, it has become necessary to extend the current restriction of movement in Lagos and Ogun States as well as the FCT for another 14 days effective from 11:59 pm on Monday, 13th of April, 2020. I am therefore once again asking you all to work with Government in this fight, said President Buhari.

Buhari has therefore signed COVID-19 Regulations No 2 of 2020 for an extension of restriction/cessation of movement in Lagos, FCT, and Ogun State.
