SGF Boss Mustapha, the chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 has urged Nigerians not to be afraid of undergoing COVID-19 test.
This was disclosed at the daily press briefing organized by the PTF COVID-19 in Abuja on Monday.
He said, “I, therefore, urge Nigerians to make use of these facilities and get tested. Similarly, I implore us not to be afraid of undertaking the COVID-19 test.
“Testing positive for COVID-19 is not a death sentence, but failure to test, especially when symptoms are evident could result in death as it may be too late once the symptoms become full-blown.
“The loss of any Nigerian is not only painful but most avoidable provided we seek help early,” the SGF said.
He also commended the activities of authorities who apprehended two illegal immigrants trying to enter Nigeria.
According to him, the arrest was successful due to the vigilance by the authorities on the nation’s border.
“The PTF is also not unmindful of the possibility of imports especially through our land borders. For this reason, our men and women of the Nigerian Immigration Service remain vigilant and this has resulted in the apprehension of two foreigners who tried to enter the country illegally over the week-end. This commendable effort is appreciated,” he said.
