The Federal Government has finally lifted the ban on interstate movement across Nigeria.
This was disclosed on Monday, June 29, by the PTF chairman, Boss Mustapha.
Mustapha, however, said that the president has extended eased lockdown by four weeks.
The National coordinator of PTF, Sani Aliyu, also added that only fifty percent of the passengers of the buses are allowed during travels.
“Only 50% of the passengers are allowed with compulsory use of face mask,” he said. The PTF, however, reaffirmed the continuation of the nationwide curfew between 10 pm and 4 am adding that “travels are not expected at this period.” Mustapha also said the government has approved the safe resumption of domestic flights in the country. He disclosed that the latest developments were contained in the task force’s fifth interim report which was submitted to President Muhammadu Buhari earlier in the day.
Mustapha said: “I am pleased to inform you that Mr. President has carefully considered the 5th Interim Report of the PTF and has accordingly approved that, with the exception of some modifications to be expatiated upon later, the Phase two of the eased lockdown be extended by another four weeks with effect from Tuesday, June 30, 2020, through midnight of Monday, 27 July, 2020.
