President Muhammadu Buhari is scheduled to meet with members of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 today.

The Presidency announced this on Tuesday via its official handle.

The meeting, which will hold at the presidential villa in Abuja might not be unconnected with the spike in the number of Coronavirus infections in the country leading to a second wave of the pandemic.

The Federal Government had earlier imposed new restrictions amid the rising cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in various parts of the country.

Mr Boss Mustapha, who is the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, announced on Monday that the directives were advisories issued to state authorities for implementation in the next five weeks.
