“I want to appreciate the Federal Government immensely for their efforts so far to contain the pandemic, and also officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease and Control for agreeing to come to the NFF secretariat to conduct the tests. After the tests, the offices and the entire complex will be disinfected in line with the protocols of the COVID-19,” stated Dr. Sanusi.
Sanusi also disclosed that after the tests, the offices would be closed for the disinfection process, while Management and Staff will work from home. Once the results are out, those who tested negative will immediately resume work in the Secretariat while anyone who tests positive will be required to self-isolate for the period stipulated in the COVID-19 protocols by the Federal Government.
