Igwe Thomas Obidiegwu of Ihiala has commended Governor Willie Obiano on proactive measure towards preventing the spread of COVID -19to Anambra State.
The traditional ruler said that Governor Obiano had done very well, in this pandemic period that hit the globe and that the measures he has taken to stop the spread of the virus in Anambra State is a very wonderful and active one.
He said that Ihiala was in conformity with the 14 days ban on social gathering, burial, wedding, traditional marriage, child dedication, among others.
According to him, “It’s better to shutdown the markets, land boundaries, businesses, events, social gathering, etc, than to lose lives”.
Because “life has no equivalent, or any thing that you can compare with it”
He went on and said that it was true that the shutdown would affect individuals and state economy, but let the needful be done.
He urged the governor to stand firm in this trying time, and not to relent in his good work and that Ihiala Local Government is solidly behind him in his efforts to stop the spread of the virus in Anambra State.
