Abia Assembly Deputy Minority Leader Hon. Chijioke Chukwu has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for his proactive responses to the Covid-19 pandemic in Nigeria.
Speaking during an interaction with Newsmen in Umuahia, Hon. Chukwu, the member representing Bende North state constituency stated that through a well thought out Post Covid-19 stimulus, the state received a princely sum of One Billion Naira.
He therefore appealed to the Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu to ensure that the template for the utilization of the fund is followed and strictly observed.
According to him “this fund is majorly meant for the revitalization and equipping of our health facilities including health centers and most importantly the training of front line medical personnel who daily come face to face with the risks of pandemics and all health challenges”.
“I also trust that the Governor will ensure that every part of the state receive equal attention in the utilization of the funds”.
He further urged Abians, especially the good people of Bende North state constituency to continue to observe all the necessary protocols to ensure that the Covid-19 incidence in the state remains as low as it has always been.
