The president held a teleconference with the Presidential taskforce on #Covid19, #PTFCOVID19 at the State House in Abuja.

President Buhari has imposed lockdowns in the nation’s commercial hub of Lagos, the capital city of Abuja and the industrial state of Ogun in a bid to slow the spread of the coronavirus in Africa’s most populous country and largest economy.
