The inter-state lockdown decision taken by the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) is a “done deal”.
On Sunday, a Chief Press Secretary to a state governor confirmed this to DAILY POST.
He explained that the chief executives made their position known on Friday to enable the federal government to put in place necessary arrangements for compliance.
“The governors’ resolution is to curtail the spread of Coronavirus. The federal government has the power to shut inter-state borders, hence the request to Mr. President,” he said.
“The two weeks’ lockdown will be announced by Mr. President. It’s a done deal. However, he will list exemptions and give Nigerians other important information.”
