Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa in a statement has urged the people of Delta to comply with lockdown measures.
He said, “As families across Delta State prepare to comply with our precautionary lockdown measures, I want to reassure you all that this decision was not taken lightly. It was taken after thorough consultations with experts, and it is aimed at protecting you and your families.
As a medical doctor, I have watched and read reports on the Coronavirus. It is real — and its effects are devastating to communities and to the human body. However, it does not travel on its own. When people do not move, it does not spread.
This is why, we will continue to work with community leaders at all levels across Delta State to sensitize them on the need for holistic compliance of the lockdown. Together, we can and we will beat this thing. But we can only do this if you play your own role.”
