Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, has said that he is treated as a coronavirus ‘suspect’ in his house.
Mustapha, who is also the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), stated this on Thursday at the daily PTF briefing in Abuja.
“I don’t know your experiences out there, but I can tell you that it is one thing that has totally disrupted and distorted our social life,” he said.
“I leave my house every day and I return in the evening. I’m treated as a suspect. I have to wash my hands; I have to decontaminate my shoes; I have to walk into my house and barely will I be sitting down, my wife will ask me, ‘have you bathed?’ I will say, ‘I just arrived’.
“I don’t know what your experiences are, but that’s the level of disruption the COVID-19 has brought into our homes and into our lives and it is the way we respond to it that will determine whether we’ll win this war.”
The SGF urged the public to adhere strictly to guidelines issued for the second phase of the eased lockdown, as part of efforts to contain the coronavirus pandemic.
