COVID-19: Ekwunife call on Ndi Anambra to stay at home. ........Commends FG's Proactive Measures.
She stressed that the actions being taken by the state government especially the total lockdown announced by the state governor, Chief Willie Obiano, was to prevent the spread of the novel virus in the state.
Senator Ekwunife, who was visibly pained by the harsh economic impact coronavirus pandemic has unleashed on the people, however, called on Ndi Anambra and other residents in the state to obey government’s directive as it’s in their best interest.
“My dear people of Anambra, I beg you to obey government’s directives and stay at home. Our governor, Chief Willie Obiano, has extended the stay-at-home directive by two weeks. Please obey the governor and stay at home.
“This is meant to forestall the spread of coronavirus in our dear state. If we are not careful and observe safety measures as stipulated by government, this deadly disease would spread here as it is already doing in many countries.
“God will not allow it to spread in our state. Therefore, I am begging you to stay at home. I know it’s going to be very challenging for so many families but you just have to try.
“I encourage all to seek God’s intervention so that after two weeks, restriction orders will hopefully be lifted so that people can go about their various businesses.
“It is also important to remember our health workers in our prayers always. These are people in the frontline of fighting this COVID-19 pandemic. I also commend the federal and state governments for their efforts to forestall the spread of this deadly disease”, she stated.
Senator Ekwunife however said that, on her part, she was making frantic efforts to support the people as much as she could, to help them overcome the challenges the COVID-19 pandemic had imposed on them, with the palliatives she has already distributed to her constituents.
