Nigeria winning fight against virus, says Government

Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF)/Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 Mr. Boss Mustapha has claimed that Nigeria’s national response on COVID-19 is achieving impressive results.

The PTF chairman, who stated this at the daily briefing of the task force on Monday in Abuja, said: “Nigeria continues to progressively witness declining confirmed cases of COVID-19 with a record low number of 79 cases on Sunday, Sept. 13.

“While this suggests that we are winning this war, the reality is that we need to improve on our commitment to eliminate the virus completely by abiding with the protocols so that we can return to a semblance of what was our normal life.

“In a very modest way, therefore, we could say that our national response, under the guidance of Mr. President, is achieving impressive results and this has been commended by our development partners.

“The PTF wishes to use this opportunity to also thank our development partners as their support has contributed in no small measures to the successes so far recorded and we count on their continued support as we progress in tackling this pandemic,” Mustapha said.

Calling for caution, the PTF chairman said: “One critical element we must not lose sight of is the fact that our cautious approach has tremendously helped in our containment efforts.

“Therefore, we should avoid complacency at all cost. Our focus should go beyond flattening the curve and ridding our land of this virus just as we did with the poliovirus.”
