The federal government has advised Nigerian People to comply with COVID-19 health guidelines as the yuletide season beckons.
The call was part of the National Economic Council (NEC) resolution after a meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Nigeria has witnessed a surge in the number of new infections of the deadly coronavirus in recent weeks.
The NEC noted that “the current trends are now approaching or surpassing the levels reached during the lockdown that was imposed at the height of the epidemic earlier in the year.”
The Council noted the increase has been caused by Nigerian People not complying with guidelines such as the wearing of masks, hand washing and social distancing.
“NEC, therefore, wishes to reemphasise the importance of these measures.
“Particularly as we approach the end of the year and the social gatherings associated with the holiday season, we must avoid activities or behavior that may aggravate the situation and necessitate another lockdown,” the resolution said.
It added that: “The continued spread of COVID-19 puts increased pressure on our already fragile health systems and threatens Nigeria’s economy. Traditional, social and religious leaders are therefore urged to play their own part by promptly taking responsible and decisive actions to help stop the spread and upsurge of the virus in Nigeria.
“States are also encouraged to take any further steps as may be considered necessary in their areas.”
