COVID-19: Gov. Ikpeazu Commences Fumigation Of Public Places (Photos)

Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has commenced the fumigation of public places as part of efforts to check the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the state, Igbere TV reports.

Our correspondent who monitored the flag-off of the fumigation exercise in Umuahia, said the governor was represented by the state Commissioner for Environment, Dr Solomon Ogunji.

Speaking at the flag-off ceremony, the Commissioner said the exercise was part of measures adopted by the state government to prevent the outbreak of COVID-19, as the state is yet to record any case.

“We thank God that Abia State is yet to have a confirmed case of COVID-19 but we must collectively do everything possible to prevent the disease from getting to our state and if for any reason it gets here we must be prepared to stop it from spreading,” he said.

“We have provided isolation centres, delivered palliatives to our people, and now, it is time to get public places in the state fumigated to further protect our people.

“No effort will be spared by this administration in protecting the people of this state from COVID-19 and other challenges because our understanding of good governance is simply that of government of the people, for the people and by the people. By the grace of God, we shall continue to live up to that understanding,” Ogunji added.

He called on private sector organizations to ensure they take a cue from the exercise and use the window provided by the lockdown to also fumigate their premises.
