Coronavirus: Activist Pledges Support for Lagos Govt

An activist and President, Campaign for Dignity in Governance (CDG), Razaq Olokoba has commended Lagos Governor, Mr babajide Sanwo-Olu over his prompt action taken to prevent the dreaded disease called coronavirus, describing him as an administrator with sharp intelligence.


Olokoba, in a statement stated that, with his pro-active step taken by designating four well equipped hospitals to handle any suspected victim is a welcome development, saying, “Sanwo-Olu has acted along the old saying that prevention is better than cure.


In addition, the group leader, who said the steps being taken by the governor were not to intimidate any national both home and abroad, however informed that dishing out telephone numbers of designated centres and people to call in cases of suspected victims of the dreaded virus is a testimony that, Lagos State is a pace setter in any emergency situations.


The CDG boss said invitation to a Chinese representative to shed more lights on the situation of things in China as it can affect Nigeria is also a commendable, stating that, “once again, Lagos State under Sanwo-Olu has taken the lead in this life saving efforts for which the Nation is grateful.”  


The youth leader promised that the commendable effort would be included in his group’s enlightenment advocacy across the country, disclosing that, “all our teeming members have been put on alert to call the lines dished out in case of any suspiciously strange behaviour by anybody around especially if the fellow has just arrived the country from abroad.


Olokoba therefore urged the Federal Government to compliment the efforts of the Lagos State government in its efforts at keeping the virus away from the country’s shore, enthusing that, “the Federal Governments involvement and collaboration should also include equipping more hospitals for the purpose of preventing the virus from causing havoc in the country.


“WE want the media also to pass this message to our numerous groups around the country to sensitise a lot of people that would be needed for the exercise. It is definite that manpower would be needed in the new secretariats on this to compliment all the works of both the state and Federal governments,” Olokoba concluded.
