|Covid-19; We Will Dispatch Experts To Re-engage Kogi Govt; Says Fg by GIdiata(m): 11:25pm On May 21, 2020|
The Federal Government on Thursday announced that a ministerial team of experts would soon be
dispatched to Kogi on a mission to engage
authorities of the state, to determine the material and technical needs of the state on COVID-19.
The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, announced in Abuja at a news conference by the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19.
Recall that the Kogi Government had alleged refusal of NCDC officials to observe protocols in line with the containment of the coronavirus when they visited thestate.
The allegation stirred up drama between the two
parties as the NCDC officials left Kogi without
adhering to terms and conditions, rolled out by Gov. Yahaya Bello.
Following the development, Ehanire said the
committee would need to re-engage the governor and work with him and his team to create conditions with which the NCDC officials could complete their job. The minister said that the ministry had developed key performance indicators to track surveillance, strategic activities, and programmes. He said that the ministry would also be working with
states to establish protocols that would improve
communication and reporting. Ehanire noted that the fact-finding team that was sent to Cross River had returned and that the ministry had
been able to identify areas of need in the state.
He said that the state’s level of preparedness was reasonable. “They have set up a committee on COVID-19 and have also started making face masks and Personal Protective Equipment.”
He, however, said that a new medical team had been assembled to take over the management of This Day Dome Treatment Centre.
“Surveillance, contact tracing, and testing capacity are increasing in all states as more labs are being added to our network COVID-19 laboratories,” he said.
