According to report reaching oyogist.com, the federal government has advised Nigerians to comply with COVID-19 health guidelines as the yuletide season beckons.
The call was part of the National Economic Council (NEC) resolution after a meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
This was disclosed in statement made available to oyogist.com
The statement reads: “NEC, therefore, wishes to reemphasise the importance of these measures.
“Particularly as we approach the end of the year and the social gatherings associated with the holiday season, we must avoid activities or behavior that may aggravate the situation and necessitate another lockdown,” the resolution said.
It added that: “The continued spread of COVID-19 puts increased pressure on our already fragile health systems and threatens Nigeria’s economy. Traditional, social and religious leaders are therefore urged to play their own part by promptly taking responsible and decisive actions to help stop the spread and upsurge of the virus in Nigeria.
“States are also encouraged to take any further steps as may be considered necessary in their areas.
