President Muhammadu Buhari has extended the presidential lockdown on Ogun, Lagos and Abuja to two more weeks

He said this in a nationwide broadcast on Monday

“With this in mind and having carefully considered the briefings and Report from the Presidential Task Force and the various options offered, it has become necessary to extend the current restriction of movement in Lagos and Ogun States as well as the FCT for another 14 days effective from 11:59 pm on Monday, 13th of April, 2020.

I am therefore once again asking you all to work with Government in this fight”

Recall that Buhari had on March 29 ordered a total movement restriction in Lagos, Abuja and Ogun State.

According to the president, the order was based on the advice of the Federal Ministry of Health and the NCDC.
