Everyone is being urged even coerced to stay at home during this dangerous time to reduce the spread of the disease. The federal government has ordered the closure of schools, some state governments also prohibited large gatherings especially in places of worship. In a bid to encourage the stay at home movement and use of cashless policy, GTbank has made the transfer of five thousand naira and below free of charge.
