Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and chairman of the Presidential Task Force, PTF, Boss Mustapha, revealed this on Sunday in an interview with channels television, following the meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the Task Force on update of coronavirus pandemic.
Mustapha said the president acknowledged the efforts of the Presidential Taskforce, the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in tackling COVID -19 pandemic.
“Well, the president expressed his satisfaction that in spite of the difficulties and the fact that as a nation, we lack the capable infrastructure looking at what is happening to the developed world, where countries that have traditionally established health institutions with all the palliatives, with all the privileges, with all the schemes that guide its people have crumble as a result of COVID-19, we are still standing and doing our best under the circumstances to ensure that we provide the necessary direction.”
“So he expressed his satisfaction with the PTF, the minister of health and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, which are an integral part of the task force.”
According to Mustapha, the president also commended the cooperation and joint effort of all the multi-sectoral ministries that are involved in the fight to limit the spread of COVID-19.
“The armed forces, the police, the kind of cooperation we have received from them, without them we wouldn’t have recorded the modest successes that we have achieved.
