Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, has said that he gets treated as a COVID-19 suspect in his own house.

Boss Mustapha who chairs the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 disclosed this during a press briefing in Abuja on Thursday.

The SGF also appealed to Nigerians to take responsibility in helping the country curb the spread of COVID-19.

“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.”

He also urged for strict adherence to the guidelines given by authorities as Nigeria nears the second phase of the lockdown ease.
