He said the extension was in accordance with the position of the Federal Government and the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF).

“Sadly, the lockdown of the state will be extended by another 14 days to flatten the curve of transmission of the virus — in accordance with the position of the Federal Government and the Nigeria Governors’ Forum.

“The lockdown for another two weeks is to reduce transmission and the number of cases. As you can see, cases are going up on in other states. Even in Kwara, we have two new cases.”

So, there is need for boundaries to lockdown. Essentially, each state has different policies on lockdown but we want to ensure that people are not moved across boundaries to transmit the virus, while we perfect measures to gradually return our people back to work.
