Buhari Tasks Govs to Work with PTF

Meanwhile, for better harmony in the fight against the pandemic, Buhari yesterday appealed to governors to work closely with the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on the disease.

Following the appeal, the president cancelled his scheduled nationwide broadcast yesterday.

Speaking during an online meeting with members of the Nigeria Governors' Forum (NGF), the president told the governors that PTF had briefed him on the way forward on the national response to the pandemic. Consequently, he said he had instructed the task force to work effectively with the governors.

"I have directed that they work very closely with the governors," he said.

The president, according to a tweet by his media adviser, Mr. Femi Adesina, on his Twitter handle, @FemAdesina, had left the responsibility of unveiling the new guideline for PTF.

A statement later by Adesina said the president during his meeting with governors, remarked that the pandemic was "beyond technology, power, and resources." According to him, the countries which have all such resources had recorded the highest rate of casualties across the world.
