PRESS STATEMENT
PLATEAU GOVERNMENT THREATENS LOCKDOWN DUE TO DISREGARD TO COVID-19 GUIDELINES
The Plateau State Government says it views with grave concern the rise in the rate of infection of the Corona virus in the State following the ease of lockdown exercise. This it says is essentially is due to the flagrant disregard to the laid down protocols as it affects this dreaded monster, by a sizeable population of the State.
The Government therefore warns that it will not hesitate to restore the lockdown earlier lifted by Governor Simon Bako Lalong as it views with dismay the non-compliance with regards to the wearing of face masks, social distancing, hand washing and the use of sanitizers.
Commissioner for Information and Communication Dan Manjang in a statement in Jos said Government has it on sound authority that some worship centres, markets, motor parks, commercial vehicles, tricycles (KEKE NAPEP) are at the forefront of this flagrant violation.
He said “in view of the foregoing therefore, Government hereby states categorically that such unbecoming attitude stimulates government to contemplate severe measures to address and arrest the situation. This could include among many, a total lockdown of the State, for a longer period, and the indefinite sealing of such premises who refuse to adhere to the guidelines”.
He reminded the citizens that Government by this announcement, wants the public to remember that there is an Executive Order duly signed by His Excellency, Rt. Hon. (Dr.) Simon Bako Lalong, KSGG, Executive Governor of Plateau State, to prosecute violators before the law.
He said the Government does not want to be pushed to taking any decision that will further hurt the people and hereby appeals to all law abiding citizens of the state to obey the COVID-19 protocols as spelt out by the State in order to curtail the disease and save lives.

Dan Manjang,
Hon. Commissioner,
Information and Communication,
Plateau State.
