Just In: FG Lifts Restriction On Football, Other Sporting Activities

He however noted that fans are still not permitted to return to the stadium and other venues as the ban on mass gathering is still in place.

Aliyu said, “The lifting of restriction on outdoor activities including football is in line with earlier consultations with the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development and the NCDC (Nigeria Centre for Disease Control).
