The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has asked Nigerians to adhere to the COVID-19 lockdown which has been extended by President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a tweet on Sunday to wish Nigerians a happy Easter, the center said the lockdown order is meant to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

It also explained that the lockdown was to complement the effort of NCDC officials working to stop the spread of the pandemic.

The NDDC also urged the citizens to avoid gatherings and crowded places to stay alive as well as keep their loved ones safe.

The NDDC’s appeal comes a day after President Muhammadu Buhari extended the lockdown order currently in place in Lagos, Abuja and other states in the country.

In a statement issued on Saturday evening signed by his SSA on media, Garba Shehu, Buhari appealed to Nigerians to endure in the face of the pandemic adding that palliatives have since been released to aid with the stay-at-home order.
