The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has expanded its scope of collaboration and experience sharing to the ECOWAS region.
Chairman of the Task Force and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Mr. Boss Mustapha stated this at the daily briefing of the PTF in Abuja.
Mr. Mustapha said the expansion was a validation of President Muhammadu Buhari’s role as the ECOWAS COVID-19 Champion.
He said the interface through the West African Health Organisation, WAHO, will be deepened as part of the short, medium and long term objectives for controlling the pandemic.
The SGF emphasised that the essence of the regional effort was underscored by the huge population of Nigeria and the trade activities across the boarders.
