GOVERNOR Willie Obiano has received a pat on the back for initiating far-reaching proactive measures to shield Anambra State from the globally rampaging Coronavirus (COVID-19) and offering economic stimulus to ameliorate its effects on the poor and vulnerable people in the state.
The President-General of Nkwelle-Ezunaka Town Union (NEU), Leonard Areh Onyenze, made the commendation on Monday, when the Chairman of Oyi Local Government Council, Dr Nwadiogbu, led his team to the community in continuation of the ongoing grassroots’ public awareness campaign to get people of the LGA comply with the governor’s directives to shut down and stay at home.
Onyenze noted that Governor Obiano’s wise initiatives had ensured that no incident of the dreaded COVID-19 had occurred in the state, urging his kinsmen and other residents of the town to embrace hygienic lifestyles and avoid close contacts with people in order to remain safe from the scourge.
Speaking, the LG boss, Dr. Nwadiogbu, accompanied by some top personnel of the council, announced that the visit was to create adequate awareness among the populace on the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The campaign train visited the 3-3 Market at Oyolu-Oze Layout, Nkwo Main Market and other business hubs in the community where Dr. Nwadiogbu took time to educate the people on preventive measures against the pandemic, and to report any suspected case to the State Health Emergency Committee headed by the governor himself.
Dr. Nwadiogbu and his team in company of Onyenze and members of NEU executive committee, also made stop-overs at busy spots in the area to admonish the people to comply with the state government’s directives to shut down, wash their hands with soap and running water as well as use sanitisers and wear face masks regularly.
