Ogun State as part of measures to curtail the spread of Coronavirus in Nigeria. He said this during a nationwide broadcast on Sunday. The curfew will begin from MondayMarch 30th by 11pm.

''Based on the advice of the Federal Ministry of Health and the NCDC, I am directing the cessation of all movements in Lagos and the FCT for an initial period of 14 days with effect from 11pm on Monday, 30th March 2020.


This restriction will also apply Ogun due to its close proximity to
Lagos and the high traffic between the two States.
All citizens in these areas are to stay in their
homes. Travel to or from other states should be postponed. All businesses and offices within these
locations should be fully closed during this period. The Governors of Lagos and Ogun States as well as the Minister of the FCT have been notified.
Furthermore, heads of security and intelligence agencies have also been briefed.
We will use this containment period to identify, trace and isolate all individuals that have come into contact with confirmed cases.

We will ensure the
treatment of confirmed cases while restricting further spread to other States.
This order does not apply to hospitals and all
related medical establishments as well as
organizations in health care related manufacturing and distribution.

Furthermore, commercial establishments such as;
a. food processing, distribution and retail
companies;
b. petroleum distribution and retail entities,
c. power generation, transmission and distribution
companies; and
d. private security companies are also exempted.
Although these establishments are exempted, access will be restricted and monitored.

Workers in telecommunication companies,
broadcasters, print and electronic media staff who can prove they are unable to work from home are also exempted.

All seaports in Lagos shall remain operational in accordance with the guidelines I issued earlier.

Vehicles and drivers conveying essential cargoes from these Ports to other parts of the country will be screened thoroughly before departure by the Ports Health Authority.

Furthermore, all vehicles conveying food and other essential humanitarian items into these locations from other parts of the country will also be screened thoroughly before they are allowed to enter these restricted areas.

Accordingly, the Hon. Minister of Health is hereby directed to redeploy all Port Health Authority employees previously stationed in the Lagos and Abuja Airports to key roads that serve as entry and exit points to these restricted zones.

commercial and private jets, are hereby suspended.
