I commend the North Western Governors including Niger and Kwara on preventive measures taken to curb the spread of COVID-19 at their security meeting yesterday in kaduna.
And let’s keep following the
advice of the Federal Ministry of Health and the NCDC which encourages maintaining social distancing, high hygiene culture through regular washing of hands with soaps and sanitizers.
Let’s adopt preventive measures and ensure the safety of our families and that of General public.
We will overcome the Covid-19 pandemic if we all take the necessary precautions at the same time!
