The Federal Government of Nigeria says the The Federal Government of Nigeria says the overriding public interest is a critical factor propelling the government policies on COVID-19 pandemic management in the country.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman, Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, says looking back at the national response, using science, data and experience from other countries, tremendous progress has been made.
He said this in Abuja yesterday at the briefing of the PTF.
He, however, noted that this positive development would be taken with vigilance and cautious optimism “based on the fact that we’re convinced that we’ve not tested enough, we’ve only recently reopened our international flights and that nations that had opened up their economies have done a re-think following the resurgence of the cases in their countries”.
He said the PTF was closely watching the developments at the airports and taking-in comments and observations sent by Nigerians and passengers.
