(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – At a virtual meeting with some members of the Nigerian Governor’s Forum, held on Monday, May 18, 2020, the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 (PTF) was directed by President Muhammadu Buhari to work closely with state governors in the war efforts against the virus.

According to a statement by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari believed that a cordial and synergistic relationship between state governors and the PTF was the best way going forward in the war on COVID-19.

Stressing that that the pandemic was not about resources, power and technology, as even some the richest, most powerful and technologically advanced countries were being ravaged by the disease, the president called on Nigerians to remain vigilant and continue adhering to preventive guidelines to prevent further spread of the disease, even as efforts to produce a cure continues on all fronts.
