Ebun Francis| The Nigeria governors forum has proposed a two weel lockdown of interstate travel in the country to curb the spread of coronavirus to the federal government.

The chairman of NGF and Ekiti state governor Kayode Fayemi made the disclosure at the end of the forums meeting on Wednesday.

Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, said the inter-state lockdown would help halt the continued rise in the number of cases as well as the spread of the pandemic.
