President Muhammadu Buhari will address Nigerians on Monday, even as the first phase of the gradual easing of the COVID-19 lockdown comes to an end.
This is according to Aliyu Sani, the national coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19.
Mr. Aliyu made this disclosure when he appeared on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
When asked if the PTF was thinking of taking a different direction seeing that many Nigerians have been flouting guidelines for the ease of lockdown, the task force coordinator noted that the President was the only one who can decide on whether or not the country should go ahead with the second phase of lockdown ease.
He said the task force had been reviewing and monitoring quite closely, stressing that there were some concerns in terms of the implementation.
Mr Aliyu added that recommendations had been made to the President and everyone would have to wait for the president’s decision on Monday.
