In his words: “In continuation of our programme to nip the

the Governor assured that he is ready to guard against anything that will bring
the disease to the state. “Today, we decided to procure hand sanitizers and we
will distribute them to all nooks and crannies of the state, “he said.

Governor Uzodimma further promised that his administration
will continue to do its best to ensure that the state is safe. He encouraged
the citizens to watch out for coronavirus symptoms and go for test, stating
