The Federal Capital Territory Administration has asked operators of nightclubs, bars and gardens across the city not to operate until the COVID-19 restriction is lifted.
The chairman of the FCT ministerial task team on COVID-19 restriction, Ikharo Attah, handed down the warning on Saturday while monitoring compliance with the regulations at Kubwa, Gwarimpa and Wuse.
Attah said, “The ban on nightclubs, parks and bars has yet to be lifted, hence the need for us to sustain routine inspection and ensure compliance. We believe that if we relax our vigilance, with the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases, it will not be good for the city.”
While expressing satisfaction with the compliance level by the nightclub operators, Attah complained about the high number of suspected commercial sex workers around buildings housing the nightclubs in Kubwa.
