PublishedBy: in NewsMay 21, 2020

Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha, has given details of thr National Economic Council (NEC) meeting held on Thursday.

The NEC teleconference which is the first, was chaired by Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo.

State Governors and other relevant government officials joined virtually.

Mustapha in a statement said, during the meeting, the issue of alignment of their state level actions with the guidelines issued was emphasized.

He said, “Similarly emphasized is the need for states to diligently implement and enforce compliance. Particularly, I underscored the need for the Governors to provide personal and strong leadership, carry the policy of community ownership to the grass roots and create deeper awareness.

“The Governors were also advised on the decision taken by some of their colleagues to permit large gatherings as such decisions could inadvertently endanger the elderly, the sick and those with underlying factors during such gatherings.”

The SGF, who also chairs the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, reiterated the categories of persons and services exempted from inter-state movement and curfew.

Mustapha listed them as medical personnel, journalists, fire/emergency service personnel, telecommunications workers and bankers on duty.

“The Inspector General of Police has further clarified the categories of essential workers in alignment with the guidelines and has issued instructions to security agents to work on the approved exemptions”, he said

He added that the PTF has received reports that Nigerians have been purchasing hydrxoychloroquine in large amount.

The SGF reiterated that the drug has not been certified for use in treating coronavirus in Nigeria by the relevant health and pharmaceutical authorities.

“Self-medication of any kind is fraught with the danger of increasing risks of avoidable casualties. If you are sick, please seek medical advice and if you are confirmed positive, kindly self-isolate in an approved facility”, he noted
