According to Sani Aliyu, ‘’We have given our recommendations to the President and we will wait for his decision on the next phase of ease of lockdown tomorrow. We have been monitoring quite closely the obedience to the ease of lockdown guidelines.

‘’Whatever decision we take is in the best interest of Nigerians. We are trying to save lives and at the same time balance it up with the economy. No country on earth can afford a lockdown for a prolonged period of time. It will be dangerous to the economy.’’

Dr. Aliyu noted that the task force has made its recommendation to the president and so everyone will have to wait for his decision on Monday.

It can be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari, on April 27, 2020, addressed the nation and announced the first phase of easing the lockdown with effect from May 4, 2020, for an initial period of two weeks. The president said that there was going to be a review of the situation after two weeks to determine compliance and also progress or otherwise on the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
