#COVID-19: Stubborn Nigerians Not Adhering To Health Guidelines – PTF


By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The apparent disregard of COVID-19 preventive guidelines by many Nigerians has attracted the opprobrium of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, which has warned of dire consequences for the country, unless these individuals changed their attitude.

Dr Sani Aliyu, the PTF’s National Coordinator, while making the views of the task force known, pointed out that many Nigerians were being lackadaisical in their behavior, making them more vulnerable to the respiratory disease, despite painstaking efforts by the government and health authorities to protect them through public enlightenment and sensitization programmes, alongside the release of guidelines on COVID-19.

Aliyu avowed that the PTF would continue to work in partnership with the country’s security agencies and state governments to ensure compliance with the COVID-19 protocols and guidelines released by the PTF and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), urging Nigerians to complement the efforts of government and other organizations spearheading the war on the ravaging pandemic.
