In Milan tear gas was used to disperse protesters, and thousands of people gathered in the centre of Naples.

The demonstrations began soon after the national government’s order to close restaurants, bars, gyms and cinemas came into effect at 6pm local time.

Many regions have also imposed night-time COVID-19 curfews – including Lombardy, Milan and Piedmont, Turin.

The violence was blamed on extremist agitators and police said 28 people had been arrested in Milan alone.

The President, however, said Nigeria was addressing the threat by re-dedicating efforts towards economic diversification, focusing on agriculture and the mining sectors.

‘’Nigeria has made good strides in Sustainable Development Goals domestication processes, as we have begun the re-alignment of the National Statistical System and indicators of the SDGs.

‘’We have developed a novel home-grown ‘Integrated Sustainable Development Goals Model, as an analytical framework for measuring how policy making can address the indivisible nature of the Sustainable Development Goals.

‘’Nigeria has also set up a Model Private Sector Advisory Group and SDGs Donors’ Forum with the aim of engaging critical stakeholders towards the attainment of the SDGs,” he said.
