COVID-19: Lockdown Continues In Plateau State – Dan Manjang – Daily Watch Press
Mr. Dan Manjang, the Hon. Commissioner,
Information and Communication, Plateau State in a statement signed today, reminded the public where he said that:
“You will recall that there is an existing lockdown order in Plateau State with regards to COVID-19 which specifies that the lockdown should be observed on Mondays to Wednesdays, while Thursdays to Sundays are allowed for partial lockdown.
You will also recall that a press release was issued last week outlining the programme of events to commemorate this year’s democracy day and the 5th anniversary celebration of the Rescue administration under the able leadership of His Excellency, Rt. Hon. (Dr.) Simon Bako Lalong, KSG.”
He further reiterate on the issue of lockdown that:
“In order to abide by the existing lockdown order, the time table for the inspection and Commissioning of Projects has now been adjusted to when the lockdown is relaxed within the week.
In the light of the above therefore, Government wishes to reaffirm that the lockdown will resume from Midnight of Sunday 7th June, 2020 in line to the existing routine.”
“However, Governor Simon Bako Lalong assures the good people of Plateau State that Government is aware of the inconveniences the pandemic is having on livelihoods and is taking every step to ensure that there is relief.
There is an ongoing engagement with critical stakeholders that will pave the way forward.
While this is being done, citizens are advised to continue to abide by the existing order as security agents will continue to enforce compliance.
The Governor of Plateau State, Rt. Hon. (Dr.) Simon Bako Lalong, KSG, once more thanks all and sundry for standing by the government in these trying times.” Mr. Manjang concluded.
