President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday extended the lockdown in Lagos, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) for another 14 days.
Buhari said this in a nationwide broadcast on Monday. He said the decision to extend the initial 14-day lockdown was taken “having carefully considered the briefings and Report from the Presidential Task Force and the various options offered.”
“It has become necessary to extend the current restriction of movement in Lagos and Ogun States as well as the FCT for another 14 days effective from 11:59 pm on Monday, 13th of April, 2020. I am therefore once again asking you all to work with Government in this fight.”
