Nigerians have been urged by the Federal Government to do everything possible to avoid the second lockdown in the country.
The plea was made on Monday, January 18, by the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha.
Mustapha, who is also the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) spoke at a Press Briefing in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
Mustapha said the government was making progress with the case management under the national response which continues to receive the support of the private sector in the delivery of medical oxygen to the various facilities.
He said: “Let me remind you that the pandemic is raging and all tiers of Government and citizens must keep their hands-on-deck.
“We are in a difficult situation in which a balance must continue to be struck between lives and livelihood. We are considering all options while hoping that broad cooperation will be received. We must do everything possible to avoid the second lockdown in Nigeria.”
