COVID-19: FG To Probe Kogi, Cross River Zero Case Claims by dre11(m): 6:10pm On May 09, 2020
The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, said on Friday at the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja that the Federal Government would dispatch its technical teams to validate the claims by Kogi and Cross River states that they did not have COVID-19 cases.

He said the initial team dispatched to Kogi had a failed mission because of “some differences” with the state authorities but that a fresh engagement would be carried out.

Ehanire said, “Kogi State is one of the two states that have said that they do not have COVID-19 patients. They seem to be sure of this. So, the agreement we have had with them after discussion with the governor is that we shall send a team in just to validate that fact and engage the authorities.

“Of course, we do that for national records and to be able to report to the world the situation in our country. We tried to send a team into Kogi on Thursday but there were some differences there. So, we need to engage the state governor again and state some conditions within which the ministry and NCDC can complete their jobs. We are going to send a team to Cross River next week also.”

The minister in his address also noted that a technical team deployed to Kano State by the ministry had trained 100 ambulance drivers and patient handlers as part of efforts in tackling the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic.

The minister said the government was also making efforts to build the “expertise of critical care doctors and nurses to utilise ventilators and other appliances being allocated to intensive care hospitals nationwide.”

He added, “A ministerial technical team comprising of various specialists was set up and deployed to Katsina State to assess the situation and report on needed support. Also, calm has been restored in the Gombe State isolation centres.”

The minister also said government’s team was in Jigawa State on a fact-finding mission as the state battled with repatriated Almajirai, “of whom many have tested positive for COVID-19.”

Ehanire said, “On Friday morning, we deployed a multi-sectoral technical team on a fact-finding mission to Jigawa State at the request of the state governor. The challenges in Jigawa revolve around repatriated Almajiris, of whom many have tested positive for COVID-19.

“The team includes doctors and nurses, who will support the state Ministry of Health in setting up and accrediting their isolation and treatment centres.”

I honestly low-key want this COVID19 shìt to Fück Nigeria and Africa up (Me inclusive). Yes. I really do.


So that when we tell northerners that God doesn't take care of Children, they'll believe.

So that when I tell my friends that your prayers and tithes doesn't do shìt, they'll believe.

So that when you tell Nigerians something exists from the angle of a learned person, they'll believe and stop arguing.

So that when next we emphasize the need for health care budget being reasonable, legislators will agree.

In my mind, the thing is not even doing well enough. Too slow for my liking.

I want the remaining Africans who'll survive, understanding the concept of cause and effect. Understanding that we pay too much attention to non priorities like religion, ethnicity, hairstyle, greetings, dressing, tattoo, choice of food, choice of dress sense, etc. While neglecting essentials.

Covid here is too slow.

The Federal Government is low key making it obvious that they are trying to play politics with this pandemic. Imagine saying they'll be sending a technical team to 'validate' their claims of being a covid 19 negative state as if its expected that all state of the Federation should be positive.


Whatever it is they're doing, they should be caring so we don't have a full blown health crisis to battle with because I wouldn't want the scenes on the US, Spain and Italy that I watched on CNN to happen in Nigeria. It won't be funny

How would a governor not carry out test at all and claim it doesn't exist in his state. By so doing, he's endangering the health of the populace. So far, every other states have been taking precautions but Kogi is doing nothing, thereby being careless. There's no border lockdown, the main reason there have been successful travelling from North to the South.

No isolation centre created, no any preparedness whatsoever. I pity kogi indigenes
