In line with the recommendations of the Presidential
Task Force on COVID-19, the various Federal
Government committees that have reviewed socio-
economic matters and the Nigeria Governors Forum,I
have approved a phased and gradual easing of
lockdown measures in FCT, Lagos and ogun States
effective from Monday, 4th May, 2020.

However, this will be followed strictly with aggressive
reinforcement of testing and contact tracing
measures while allowing the restoration of some
economic and business activities in certain sectors.
Furthermore, new nationwide measures are to be
introduced as follows;

1. There will be an overnight curfew from 8pm to

6am. This means all movements will be prohibited
during this period except for essential services;

2. There will be a ban on non-essential inter-state
passenger travel until further notice;

3.Partial and controlled interstate movement of
goods and services will be allowed for the movement
of goods and services from producers to consumers;
and

4. We will strictly ensure the mandatory use of face
masks or coverings in public in addition to
maintaining physical distancing and personal
hygiene.

Furthermore, the restrictions on social and religious
gatherings shall remain in place. State Governments,

corporate organisations and philanthropists are
encouraged to support the production of cloth masks
for citizens.

For the avoidance of doubt, the lockdown in the FCT,
Lagos and Ogun States shall remain in place until
these new ones come into effect on Monday, 4th May
2020.
