The chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, has warned Nigerians against the disregard of the eased lockdown guidelines.

Boss Mustapha, who is the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), made this known during the daily briefing of the Task Force on Wednesday.

He said the disregard for the eased lockdown guidelines portends danger for the country.

Mustapha said: “The overall assessment of compliance with the measures and outcomes of modelling we have developed, point in the direction of danger ahead. We, therefore, need personal discipline, increased awareness and enforcement.

“I want to reiterate the fact that our individual and collective safety is in our hands and I re-echo my call and appeal to Nigerians to demonstrate our duty to ourselves and loved ones by minimising the risk of getting infected by the virus.”
