Buhari Alone Will Decide If COVID-19 Lockdown Will Be Extended, Says SGF
Updated April 7, 2020President Muhammadu Buhari at his office in the Presidential Villa in Abuja on March 26, 2020. Photo: Twitter- @NGRPresident The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, says the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 lacks the power to end or extend the lockdown imposed by the President.
Responding to questions from reporters on Tuesday, the SGF who is also the chairman of the task force stated that only President Muhammadu Buhari could take a decision on the issue.“He (Buhari) and he alone will make the decision as to when the lockdown would either be extended or it will stop at the expiration of 14 days,” Mustapha said at the briefing of the task force which held in Lagos.
He, however, noted that the President would have to review the recommendations of the team set up to monitor the various measures to curtail the spread of coronavirus and cushion its effects on the people.The SGF explained that members of the task force were in Lagos to inspect the isolation centres in the state, as part of the responsibilities of the team.
He said, “We are looking at the objectives that were set when the lockdown or the quarantine declaration was signed by the President, and subsequently by several other states.“Before the end of the week, we will do an evaluation and part of the trip here was to do an evaluation to see how the objectives that were set were being met and at the end of that exercise, we would have the responsibility of reporting to Mr President.”
Mustapha recalled that the President had in his declaration explained how he arrived at the decision to impose the lockdown in the two states and the FCT.According to him, President Buhari took the decision on the advice of the Minister of Health and the health experts when eventually led to the signing of the Quarantine Declaration 2020.
The SFG said at the end of the task force’s evaluation, some recommendations and advice would be presented to the President after which the Nigerian leaders would take the next step of action.

All of you that brought this APC government to this country will surely pay for it, God must expose all of you. What I know is that, they can only reason for him not capable of reason for himself any longer. Alone? Please stop giving people un cook food to share Na there family they eat am,creat a centre for people to come in and eat or let them distribute it to them after cooking everyday
Passion president 😁 Just say 'Presidency', simple! Strongly agree, but he need to consider almost all Nigerian including student as worthy of receiving the COVID-19 relief materials. Let Jubril decides when the world ends. Making policies inside toilet 😀😀😀😀😀😅😅😅😀😀😀 Imagine this generation children
If baba Buhari our humble president alone decide if COVID 19 Lockdown will be Extended or not. Hmmmm Nigerians put in mind that Baba will forget we are at home Tilll october.1st Point of correction, presidency will decide on Buhari is deciding anything because no president in our country it our legislature that is deciding for us don't lockdown us again oh hunger is killing than Corona
Which buhari ? The State Governors and all stakeholders do have the constitutional right to have a say in what goes on, on the ground in an appropriately devolved Federal Government of which Mr. President is the Head, albeit not in a totalitarian sense. The minister of what I don't even know... cos the country is so confused... said the other day that... they are yet to approve it... so, how did it enter Nigeria... how come the people mounting it are not part of the lockdown?
No way. Don't tell us that. No lockdown anywhere again. Even some states even told their people that they can even attend mosque. So why bother the President again? Let us continue like this until we learn our lesson Please can you guys tell our president to please explain to us why the 5g ntwrk is already mounted in places like lagos and Abuja without the the approval of the masses, they want us to sit in ours houses so they can continue mounting it..
,, What is our business with MBuhari . jidesanwoolu is our governor and we would only do what he instructs. You lots have no authority over us in this case. I believe Civil org. should go to court to address if FG has any authority to determine lockdown or the governor. As inept as MBuhari is? We are all doomed
I guess it's only insensitive for us (especially the educated Nigerian youths) to question the lockdown. The two weeks lockdown have really helped in curbing the increase of the COVID-19 cases. You have life that is why you are clamouring to go out. Stay at home. Stay safe... Get ready for covid 20 (hunger)
It's clear.. we get it..or shouldn isay I get it..there is gonna be an extension..no problem...how long more? I'm not sure anyone had died of coronavirus in Nigeria, If you know, you know!! Even as the President of Nigeria Mr. Muhamadu Buhari has directed that all salaries should be paid to workers, the N-Power volunteers are yet to be paid their March 2020 stipend. This endemic delay in payment of our stipend under the ministry of HA&NDM is worrisome.
He can decide its the reports and suggestions giving to him that will determine his action U can see Abuja and others states people's are going up and down .14 days is ok will are tired The country with the largest Case of the coro ends lockdown, why is Nigerian different MBuhari is the worst Pandemic that has ever befallen Nigerians. Buhari through his blood-thirsty Police/Army has killed more Nigerians during this lockdown than even d dreaded Coronavirus. What is now d use of Buhari’s lockdown wen he himself is dangerous to our existence
This government is highly very irresponsible. What is d FG’s intention for declaring a lockdown? Is it not to protect lives from being taken by Coronavirus? Now Police/Army have killed more people than Coronavirus.Coronavirus has only killed 4 people in Nigeria which I even doubt Both d Police and Hunger have in no small measure killed more people than even d much dreaded Coronavirus which FG claims to be saving Nigerians from. Nigerians need to first save themselves from this blood-thirsty wicked government before talking about Covid19.Wake up my people!
Since the wicked COS is no where to be found, I doubt that his replacement has that kinda authority to tell Bubu what to do/ not to dk Does Buhari know what COVID_19..🤷🤷🤷 The lockdown need not only be extended but fully enforced. People are still moving about as if nothing is happening. We must understand our priorities. Government must also be serious in implementing the palliatives to those that need it please.
He better go and check his cows 🐄 if they have covik 1 -9 birus I wish Buhari will be decisive on lockdown. It's only when you're alive that you work Its better there is no extension on lockdown Things have not been easy for people since this lockdown Baba himself no know anything. Just packaging by his cabal.
Can you imagine! So Buhari alone will decide....hmm Is he a dictator? I thought we were running a democracy governance MAuwalNura open the boarders let there be movement within the country, that's for a start tho God decides n not Buhari, the sleeping oga at the top. If he had acted earlier we all would not have been in this situation now. People are dieing of hunger in Nigeria as against Coronavirus.
Does Buhari know what is even going on? Smh. Whether he decide or not without provision for the masses he can't work again....Stay Safe.. Steadyman Say So...Ikeja Omole Estate Is he even looking at the stats to evaluate if the lockdown is working? Currently we've had more new cases than b4 & locking down lagos is destroying d already bad economy. Even at that, our individual bills keeps piling&we are banned to work. MBuhari jidesanwoolu followlasg
Only God n Nigerian government knows the truth about Cobik one nine virus ,weak leader Or you mean Abba Kyari Please add ooo What does Buhari know? NOTE We don't have a president, we only have State governors Has a concern citizen, I'll suggest for more extension and all activities should resume once theres no case for approximately 2weeks. While curtailing the pandemic I'll urge the NGRPresident to mandate the power suppliers to give adequate power for this period of staying home.
The SGF has to sing for his dinner!! Even he knows that Buhari is unable to decide anything! He is old and senile but Nooo, they have to use him as front for their meal ticket God save us from the hand of robort Ok Doctor Covix 1-9 Buhari is a President in acclaimed Federal Republic of Nigeria. Governors in their respective state have the power to decide not Buhari NigeriaGov
Please ooo they should look at condition of Nigeria's Thunder fire buhari We are coming out on our own from next week weather President likes it or not It must be extended. Low testing and poor rate of compliance are factors that can create an upsurge if govt decides to lift the lockdown Was there lockdown initially? Stop deceiving everyone. Whether they extend it or not, people are still going out. I can see them everywhere, in courts, parties, streets, etc.
Some idiots are using the name of MBuhari to defraud Nigerians since they know Buhari is not alive that's why they don't care for anything in the country Hunger will be the major determinant. 🤞🤞🤞 Is it buhari or jibril Does he know anything happening in the city’s? Is that Buhari? Please don't extend the lockdown.. I'm so bored af
Buhari alone? It is finished! Man has to conscience! We all staying at home Una no dey tire🙄 Na him know....we r all in it 🤷🏽 Sure, he only. I suppose Where's is buhari and his vice? Why are they doing social distancing with Nigerian? These lantern Dem keep for him front, does he read anything with it?
Awon oliriburuku somebody!!! Olorun a da won lejo. Gbogbo won ni Olorun ma fi ajulo han. Ohun to ju Corona Virus lo ni Olorun ma fi be won wo. Gbogbo owo ti won npin ni Olorun ma fi da won lejo. Gbogbo emin kokan ti won nfi ebi pa paapa awon omode, eleda won a ba yin wi. Buhari is now a doctor? Please we are begging you Fed govt, pls don't extend it
Confusion everywhere, last time was presidency, now is Buhari maybe tomorrow it will be Aso rock that'll decide. Lol He's a health practitioner abi? He is walking alone then. Personally, I don't like being idle.... Since this state lockdown to federal govt. Lockdown, I have not been myself... Please release me from this my home prison. Please
This is not about cov 19, Bubu, whic contract apart form the evil 5g network u hv been signing wit the chiness gov. Instellation extension is needed not cov control. Is MBuhari even aware there's a lockdown Pls who is Buhari May God give our leaders, Courage to Say no, to wicked and unreasonable men. Amen! CourageToSayNo
Some Of the people around and working with Mr President need a lot of schooling on how to respond to questions and choice of words too. They brought the Corona Virus so should be locked down not us We are asked or advised to stay at home basically on health issues, palliative measure to ensure we didn't collapse at home by hunger should also be guaranteed
Let us hear what the traveler himself have to say. Who's the person? Someone who can't pronounce COVID-19 will be the one to decide for millions of Graduates in Nigeria... Just waiting for my bokinafaso visa..let me go and rest there What does he knw his reading Kindly follow me Assure you I will follow back To whom it may concern 🥰🥰🥰
You CAN'T extend the.lockdown when almost 95% of Nigerians live from hand to mouth. This will be VERY SELFISH and WICKED. HUNGER and STARVATION is DEADLIER than the virus itself. MBuhari NigeriaGov NGRPresident Fmohnigeria No be only him ooo hunger wan kill person for here no work no money no food make he no extend any lockdown ooo
Wetin this man dey read all this while sef..?.. Maybe we should put him inside sanusi library so he could read to the fullest mumu man... Imagine a president without a single laptop on his desk.. Fucked being. 😤😤😤 Please address him as his excellency, your excellency and my blessed media aids, not Buhari
Who then are his Advisers? You? And so what have you advice. I wonder what Nigeria is turning into🤔.What is the task force on COVID-19 & NCDC doing? If I may ask, are they not suppose to brief him on the situation & advice most suitable measure to take. Please guys stop all this drama human lives are at stake.

Hahahahahaha.... O, 2023 is too far ehnnnn I heard him clearly he said buhari will meet with the professionals in the sectors and minister of health so that will determine if there will be an extension in the lockdown or not......stop fake news Is he aware of COVID one Nine? Buhari that we don't know if he is still in this country. .
Ha ....without input from Health Ministry or NCDC? What metrics would be considered by him in taking this decision?🤦♂️ Please have mercy on us hungry went killing me This is what going to happen if care isn't taken. Just take your time to read. Tell that person to pack one side Which Buhari? Someone that does not even know what is going on?
Hmmmmmm! Buhari indeed..... Is he even aware of what's happening? Mad people every where Not minister of information lai Muhammed, because for him to say if Nigeria don't behave well FG will extend the lockdown who's him ,he's the one that make the lockdown order or President. Egungun be careful. What for?
That will be the height of insensitivity on his part should the lock down be extended. Lol, when last did Bubu take decision over his life He should lockdown the whole country na.... Why did they declare 14 days before? It won't be funny anymore. Do they know how many people that struggle to feed their family and those that work for private enterprises that won't get paid without going work.
You people should better know what you are doing because people are hungry you stop us from work you didn't provide any food no money my pregnant at been drinking garri and you are thinking of extension Buhari Alone 🙄🙄🙄 Hopefully there won't be need for extension. When did Buhari start making decision for Nigeria. 14 days is enough period

Heavens rain convid 19 on that person any individual try to extend any lockdown, cos nobody from the presidency care about how the pple survive despite the fact that we have billion of naira in government account 😈😈😈 who do you help? Hunger kills Dan covid19 Once the 2 weeks is over. Lagosians will troop out in their numbers, Rent, food prices etc have gone up at mad prices.
What are this people saying for GOD sake.. What kind of lock down are we talking about when the people in Ijebu-ode Ogun State are not experiencing the same kind of lock down we are experiencing in Lagos MBuhari jidesanwoolu pls,there must b a way out 2this That imposter!!! Are there no taskforce charged with this responsibility professionally ? Chai , everything is Buhari. This guy has metamorphosised to a demigod. He should be impeached .
This is outrightly wrong, undemocratic & dictatorial......his directives should be a result of advisories and recommendation from competent, qualified & professional advisers and committee saddled with the responsibility of tackling the pandemic! Mr bubu. No go do rough play o Short and important extension
Lol does he know what's going on? I doubt it. Is the extension really for the virus or the installation of 5G poles they've started at Lagos. Isn't that the reason they all Lord of being infected and went on self isolation in a place we don't know obviously abroad where they won't be affected by the poles.
lol if u want to post a photo of the presidency pls use the one he used for the lockdown and not this one and let's see if it will be as good as this one ......... So you people know how far Let's just hope he makes the right decision Has the president consulted Prof Soyinka before taking this decision?
He should lockdown ask rock, na dem be the corona virus and release us to go out business Extension but softer now . He is not serious.... State government can't decide again.. What does he knows about Lagos or south west. I take God beg govt oo make dem no even think go there out all ooo Someone that doesn’t even know how to pronounce the pandemic
Which Buhari? Of course Please we don't want extensions oooo hunger dey abeg
