The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Monday urged banks and the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) to comply with guidelines on relaxation of the lockdown.
Mohammed, who made the call at the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja, also implored Nigerians to exercise patience in their bid to use the bank.
He, however, said the pandemonium experienced in banks across the country on Monday was not unexpected.
The minister told journalists that the Federal Government has discussed with banks to constantly restock their Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) in order to forestall crowding.
He also asked the leadership of NURTW to warn their members to adhere strictly to transportation guidelines on COVID-19.
Mohammed, who is also a member of the PTF, said commercial vehicles are permitted to carry only between 40 percent and 60 percent of their capacity.
He commended the media for its role in the ongoing efforts to combat the pandemic.
“The fight against COVID-19 has been made difficult by fake news, so we are to rely on you journalists for accurate news,’’ the minister said.
