President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, ordered some measured steps to further ease up movement across the country towards rebounding the economy with the opening of Nigeria’s airspace for domestic flights and the reopening of land borders for interstate movements.

Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), and Chairman, Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, announced in Abuja, on Monday that as from Wednesday, July 1, interstate travels, which has been restricted for more than two months now would resume, provided such journeys are made outside curfew hours.

Mustapha, told reporters at the daily briefing of the task force that the latest developments were contained in the task force’s fifth interim report which was submitted to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), earlier in the day.

His words: “I am pleased to inform you that Mr President has carefully considered the 5th Interim Report of the PTF and has accordingly approved that, with the exception of some modifications to be expatiated upon later, the Phase Two of the eased lockdown be extended by another four weeks with effect from Tuesday, June 30, 2020 through Midnight of Monday, 27 July, 2020.

“Specifically, however, the following measures shall either remain in place or come into effect:

“Maintaining the current phase of the national response, for another four weeks in line with modifications to be expatiated by the National Coordinator;
“Permission of movement across state borders only outside curfew hours with effect from 1st July, 2020;

“Enforcement of laws around non-pharmaceutical interventions by States, in particular, the use of face masks in public places;
