” In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, I issued the Covid-19 Regulations, 2020 on 30th March, 2020, by which I declared Covid-19 a dangerous infectious disease;

“As part of efforts to defeat the disease, I ordered the restriction of movement in Lagos State, the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja and Ogun State for an initial period of 14 days with effect from 11pm of 30th March, 2020, to enable the Government identify, trace and isolate individuals that have come in contact with confirmed cases, in order to contain the disease;

”  It has become expedient to extend the restriction to enable the Government achieve its objective;

The regulations further reads,

“Extension of Restriction/cessation of Movement in Lagos, FCT and Ogun State

The restriction/cessation of movement in Lagos State, the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja and Ogun State is extended for a further period of 14 days with effect from Tuesday 14th April, 2020.”

The regulations signed by the President further give legal backing to the executive order issued as regard the COVID-19 lockdown extension
