According to reports and comment from the Director-General of the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu, President Muhammadu Buhari will make some difficult decisions on the extension of lockdown in Nigeria.
Ihekweazu made this known while on a courtesy call on Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, in his office at Government House Katsina, said the extension of lockdown will be determined by the reports from the presidential task force on COVID-19 and Teleconference meeting with state governors on Wednesday.
He said: ”President Buhari will on Wednesday have a teleconference with the governors and there will be some difficult decisions to be made on how to restart the economy, extend lockdown especially on what to start and what not to start.”
Remember on April 13, president Muhammadu Buhari extended lockdown in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun by 14 days which elapses on 27. Nigerians are agitating against any possible extension of the lockdown.
However, Nigerians are eagerly waiting to know if the lockdown order by Buhari will exceed April 27 despite an increase in cases of Coronavirus cases across the country.
