FG Warns Against Christmas Carol Festivities, Tells Nigerians Abroad To Stay Away
The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has urged Nigerians to be weary of festivities such as Christmas carols as the year winds down. It also warned against non essential travels just as it asked Nigerians abroad to remain wherever they are or stand the risk of being stranded in the country in the event that the government takes a decision on international travels. The call formed the theme of the speeches of the Chairman of the PTF, Boss Mustapha, the national coordinator, Sani Aliyu, the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, and the Director General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Chikwe Ihekweazu, at the weekly briefing of the task force in Abuja on Monday. Mustapha said the PTF was escalating its surveillance and testing drive to ensure that the spread of the virus was effectively contained as the nation approaches the festive season.
