The Federal Government of Nigeria on Monday lifted ban on interstate movement effective from July 1, 2020.
The Secretary to the Government (SGF) of the Federation and chairman Presidential Task Force (PTF) on Covid-19, Boss Mustapha, disclosed this during the daily media briefing.
However, the national coordinator of Presidential Task Force (PTF), Dr. Sani Aliyu added that only fifty per cent of the passengers of the buses are allowed during interstate travels.
According to him, only 50% of the passengers are allowed with compulsory use of face masks.
The PTF, however, reaffirmed the continuation of the nationwide curfew between 10 pm and 4 am adding that travels are not expected at this period.
The Federal government does not intend to add to the burdens of the citizens and that is why this interstate travels ban has been lifted.
This lifting of the ban on interstate travels comes into effect from July 01/07/2020. It is hoped drivers and passengers will strictly adhere to the rules and regulations while travellings.
