Nigeria is not ready for full lifting of the lockdown, meaning the first phase of the eased lockdown will remain in place for two weeks.  “The reality is that in spite of the modest progress made, Nigeria is not yet ready for full opening of the economy and tough decisions have to be taken for the good of the greater majority. Any relaxation will only portend grave danger for our populace.

"Advisedly, the current phase of eased restriction will be maintained for another two weeks during which stricter enforcement and persuasion measures will be pursued,” said secretary to the government Boss Mustapha.

Airports, land borders, schools, parks and places of worship will remain closed. Large gatherings and interstate travels remain banned and a nationwide curfew from 20:00 to 06:00 local time still remains in force.
