Speaking on adherence to stipulated guidelines for conduct during the ease of lockdown, Boss Mustapha acknowledged that the country witnessed a rise in the number of positive cases during the first week of the ease of lockdown, which he attributed to the country’s expanded testing capacity, made possible by the opening of more testing centres.

Mustapha directed all state governors to approach the Bishopric in their individual states, to take oerv and access the facilities.

He advised that the isolation centres should set up the centres to accommodate a minimum of 300 beds.

Mustapha advised Nigerians to strictly follow laid down guidelines for movement and interaction this period.
