FG and Lockdown
The federal government has talked about the possibility of a total lockdown amidst the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic hitting the country.
According to the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, the government is not planning to impose a lockdown.
While speaking on a radio programme, the minister said despite the current spread of COVID-19 in Nigeria, another lockdown is not an option.
Mohammed stressed that the economy is already stressed and it is not going to be in the interest of the economy to lock the nation down.
He added that with the directives given to government workers from level 12 below to work from home, while enforcing other COVID-19 protocols things should be under control.
It would be recalled that Lagos State government has also directed all level 14 workers and below to work remotely.
He said it is important that every Nigerian take the COVID-19 protocols as the transmission has reached the community.
Mohammed during the programme hinted that those who are to come into Nigeria are only going to be allowed when they present a COVID-19 negative result certificate.
