President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday delivered his third addresses on the coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria.

It was Buhari’s third national broadcast he said;

“Furthermore, new nationwide measures are to be introduced as follows;

a. There will be an overnight curfew from 8 pm to 6 am. This means all movements will be prohibited during this period except for essential services;

b. There will be a ban on non-essential inter-state passenger travel until further notice;

c. Partial and controlled interstate movement of goods and services will be allowed for the movement of goods and services from producers to consumers; and

d. We will strictly ensure the mandatory use of face masks or coverings in public in addition to maintaining physical distancing and personal hygiene.

Furthermore, the restrictions on social and religious gatherings shall remain in place. State Governments, corporate organisations and philanthropists are encouraged to support the production of cloth masks for citizens.

For the avoidance of doubt, the lockdown in the FCT, Lagos and Ogun States shall remain in place until these new ones come into effect on Monday, 4th May 2020.

The Presidential Task Force shall provide sector-specific details to allow for preparations by Governments, businesses and institutions.

In respect to the above guidelines, State Governors may choose to adapt and expand based on their unique circumstances provided they maintain alignment with the guidelines issued above.

To support our businesses and traders, the monetary and fiscal authorities shall deploy all the necessary provisions needed for production to continue and thus, jobs restored.

These revised guidelines will not apply to Kano State.

With regards to Kano, I have directed the enforcement of a total lockdown for a period of two weeks effective immediately.

The Federal Government shall deploy all the necessary human, material and technical resources to support the State in controlling and containing the pandemic and preventing the risk of further spread to neighbouring States.

I wish to once again commend the frontline workers across the country who, on a daily basis, risk everything to ensure we win this fight.

For those who got infected in the line of duty, rest assured that Government will do all it takes to support you and your families during this exceedingly difficult period.

I will also take this opportunity to assure you all that your safety, wellbeing and welfare remain paramount to our Government.

I will also recognise the support we have received from our traditional rulers, the Christian Association of Nigeria, the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and other prominent religious and community leaders.

Your cooperation and support have significantly contributed to the successes we have recorded to date.

I will urge you all to please continue to create awareness on the seriousness of the coronavirus among your worshippers and communities while appealing that they strictly comply with public health advisories.

I also thank the Nigeria Governors’ Forum and the Presidential Task Force for all their hard work to date. Through this collaboration, I remain confident that success is achievable.

I also wish to thank corporate organisations, philanthropists, the UN system, the European Union, friendly nations, the media and other partners that have taken up the responsibility of supporting our response.

And finally, I will thank all Nigerians again for your patience and cooperation during this difficult and challenging period. I assure you that the government shall continue to take all necessary measures to protect the lives and livelihoods of our citizens and residents.

I thank you for listening and may God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria. //”
