The Federal Government on Monday said it did not know how long COVID-19 would last in the country.
The Secretary to the Government of Federation, Boss Mustapha, said this at a press conference he jointly addressed with the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, in Abuja where the government revealed that the country had recorded its second COVID-19 death.
The Federal Government has already ordered a lock down in two states and the FCT as parts of efforts to slow down the spread of the virus.
However, on Monday, the Ogun State Government said it had got the presidential permission to shift the lockdown to Friday. On Monday, the SGF, Mustapha, said, “We don’t know how long this thing will last.
That’s the truth about it. I believe with sheer determination of all Nigerians, we will overcome these challenges. “We are doing everything to ensure conformity of policies with state governments. We will do everything within our power to stop the case.”
He added, “Let me use this medium to appeal to all Nigerians, through you, for full understanding, unity of purpose and in the interest of humanity, to observe all measures put in place, remain vigilant and cooperate with security and other agencies who are toiling day and night to keep us safe and alive
