The Presidential Task Force on COVID – 19 on Thursday said 26 states were not meeting COVID -19 test targets.
The Federal Government also lifted restriction on sporting activities , including football , and cleared all categories of civil servants for resumption of work .
Addressing journalists at a briefing in Abuja , the Secretary to the Government of the Federation , Boss Mustapha , said only the Federal Capital Territory and Lagos had achieved the target of testing one per cent of the population , while 26 states of the federation had yet to test up to 25 per cent .
He said apart from the FCT and Lagos State , three states that had crossed the 50 per cent testing mark were Plateau , Gombe and Rivers .
He said, “ Twenty- six others are yet to measure up to 25 per cent . This is considered a serious problem , which is further compounded by the increasing general apathy and disbelief about the risk of COVID -19 in Nigeria .”
He recalled that at the last briefing on Monday , he said the PTF had compiled all its observations and findings and would in due course present the 8 th Interim Report and recommendations to the President , Major General Muhammadu Buhari ( retd. ) , to enable the national response proceed into the next phase.

“It is unfortunate that in all Nigerian governors, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum of Borno State and only a few have contributed,” he said.

“If this is true, then there is no doubt that the enemies of this government are many, and the most notable among them are the national legislators who have made Abuja their city of Mecca and Jerusalem and scantly visiting their constituencies while it is a tragedy. “

Professor Jibia further added, “God bless Minister Sadiya Faruk for the unprovoked abuse. Also the national legislators, God willing. Those who deceived the people given the support, God punish them”.
