The Federal Government has urged Nigerians to pay no attention to the news of the re-introduction of nationwide lockdown.
Recall that the Federal Government had announced the re-implementation of a 12am to 4am curfew across all 36 states states to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 infections hence the trending hashtag #lockdown on Twitter.
In a fresh release through Information and Culture Minister Lai Mohammed, the FG asked Nigerians to shun the news.
“Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, urges Nigerians to disregard any news of a new lockdown by the Federal Government to control the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. He says (the) news has been reported out of context.”
