Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the federal government on Monday, September 21, said that the sum of N32 billion had been released to state governors to fight the novel coronavirus pandemic in their domains.

He said the PTF had released N1bn each to 32 state governors for the purpose of driving the COVID-19 response.
In another report, the federal government called for more vigilance on the possible resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic as some states announce schools resumption.

Mustapha noted that the scientific community have tried to explain some new manifestation of COVID-19 spread, but lamented that the nation continues to observe a reversal of gains in the battle mostly in countries around Europe.
