As we finalize plans, the Economic Sustainability Committee today engaged with the Presidential Economic Advisory Committee on the Sustainability Plan.

The Economic Sustainability committee is headed by the vice president Yemi Osinbajo. The Committee was inaugurated on April 2 to tackle the economic challenges and fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Indeed, this plan by the Federal Government will help a long way in sustaining the lives of many citizens of Nigeria.
Also, the management of the Kaduna Markets Development and Management Company has released the list of locations of temporary neighbourhood markets that will become operational from Saturday, 2nd May 2020.
This follows the directive of the Kaduna State Government that all major markets will be closed and be replaced by temporary neighbourhood markets while the Quarantine Orders are in force.
The temporary markets are located in public facilities which have been selected to foster easy access and remove the need for long commutes to get essentials. Traders in food and essentials will be allocated space to sell their goods in these markets which shall operate from 10am to 4pm.
Traders and customers are required to wear facemasks and observe social distancing within these temporary markets.
Security agencies will enforce compliance with required conditions and ensure that business is conducted in an atmosphere of law and order.
The general public is urged to kindly cooperate with the arrangements so that citizens can purchase essentials in safe conditions designed to reduce the risk of infection by Covid-19.
