….says Kano is a litmus test in battle against pandemic.

PRESS RELEASE

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar expresses sympathy and solidarity with the family of media mogul, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi and members of his family who tested positive to Covid-19.

In a press statement released by the Atiku Media Office, the Waziri Adamawa calls on all well-meaning Nigerians to put the matter of the speedy recovery of Chief Dokpesi and his family, and other victims of the Covid-19 pandemic in prayers. The former Vice President describes Chief Dokpesi as a patriotic and law-abiding Nigerian for the way he cooperated with the NCDC to carry out the test on him, his staff and entire family when it was earlier discovered that his son had tested positive.

He notes  that Dokpesi is not among those people who would because of the position and influence they occupy and wield in society be shy to perform a civic duty.

“He is indeed a role model worthy of emulation”.
The Wazirin Adamawa therefore urges Nigerians, in the face of the prospects of the relaxation of restrictions of the past five weeks, to continue to abide by all the known protocols set out by the NCDC. These protocols according to the former Vice President are washing hands, avoiding crowded areas, observing social distancing, using face masks and hand sanitizers to be able to achieve victory over the pandemic and roll back the situation by stopping further infections.

Similarly, the former Vice President draws attention to the situation in Kano, referring to it as a litmus test to winning the battle against COVID-19.
He calls on the Federal Government and all the agencies involved in the fight against the pandemic to collaborate with the Kano State government to stem the spread of the plague in the state.

Atiku stresses that checkmating the pandemic in the state is one sure way of ensuring the safety of people in the surrounding states to Kano, other parts of the North and the country.

Even as the former Vice President expresses his deepest condolences over the spate of deaths in Kano state in recent times, he counsels that efforts should be geared towards providing plausible explanation of the situation for the good of the people of the state.
