NIGERIA GOVERNMENT HANDS OVER COVID-19 BATTLE TO STATES

Boss Mustapha

Chairman of the Presidential Task Force, PTF on the pandemic, Boss Mustapha, has said that the ownership of the next stage of the fight will be the responsibility of the states, the local government, the traditional institutions and the religious leaders.

President Muhammadu Buhari received a briefing from members of the PTF on COVID-19 at his residence at the State House, Abuja on Sunday.

Addressing State House Correspondents after the meeting, the PTF Chairman explained that Nigeria has gone into community transmission of #COVID-19, and the communities are in the states, so the states should take responsibilities.

According to Mustapha, the Federal Government will henceforth simply provide supervision and coordination.
