President Muhammadu Buhari’s Administration, again, has extended the phase two of the partial lockdown in the Nigerian economy by four weeks, with effect from Tuesday, June 30 to Monday, July 27, 2020.

Mr. Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, disclosed this to State House correspondents, in Abuja, FCT, Monday, June 29 shortly after members of the PTF briefed President Buhari on the situation report in regard to the on-going efforts at curbing further spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the country.

Mustapha said that the latest extension of the lockdown had come with some modifications to the ease of lockdown protocols.

According to the Chairman of PTF on COVID-19, one of the adjustments to the protocols is that it allows interstate travels outside the curfew hours of 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. daily.

The second phase of the eased lockdown also allows students who are taking their final examinations in various institutions of learning to resume schools.
