Today, I announced more measures to cushion the effect of the extended lockdown in Lagos. 

We have begun the distribution of relief items to 250,000 vulnerable residents and in addition to this, 100,000 youths will be provided one meal per day across LCDAs via our food kitchens.

We are also starting a conditional cash transfer to 250,000 people as part of our relief package while repayment on state facilitated loans to SMEs & MSMEs through LSETF will have a moratorium of 3 months to help ease the effect of the lockdown for businesses and their employees.

He added the government is fast tracking contact tracing in the state, while he stressed that all impounded vehicles by the LASMA and VIO for minor offences will be released to cushion the effect of the lockdown in the state.

He said,
"To ensure we track and eliminate the risk of a spread of #COVID19, officials of @LSMOH will be visiting our homes to obtain information on travel and health history of Lagosians and I implore you all to cooperate with them"

@followlastma and VIO will also release all impounded vehicles for minor offences from March 1. All these will be done to reduce the impact of the lockdown on residents of the state.

This period demands a bit of sacrifice from us all. Let us join hands to defeat #COVID19.

He further said that, this is the season for obedience and personal responsibility, while he urged residents to cooperate with the government in the fight against the novel coronavirus.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday night, Nigeria recorded Nineteen Coronavirus cases in the country.
