The Nigerian government on Monday extended the second phase of the COVID-19 eased lockdown by another one week.

The extension was disclosed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha, during the daily briefing of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 in Abuja.

Mustapha, who is the Chairman of the task force explained that the extension became necessary as the end of phase two coincides with Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

“We informed you two weeks ago that the process of submitting the 6th Interim Report and recommendations for next steps had commenced. The PTF has reached advanced stages of the process.

“It has also considered that due to the upcoming Sallah (Eid El-Kabir) festivities, which coincides with the expiration of the current phase, it would be prudent to extend by one week, from 29th July 2020 till Thursday 6th August 2020.

“It has accordingly secured permission to retain the existing guidelines to that date,” he said.
