Till today,Abia state Governor Rejects Mandatory Self Isolation As He Returns From A #Coronavirus Prone Country
Despite rumors that made the rounds about 2 days ago that the governor of Abia state, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu was stranded in America over the coronavirus lockdown, the governor indeed touched down in Nigeria today.
The governor came into the country and was welcomed by top government officials and thereafter, proceeded to the government house where he addressed the press.
One thing came to the mind of this reporter, why did the governor not isolate himself as advised by the ministry of health?
Everyone who has come into the country in the past 1-2 weeks has obeyed this instruction but the governor of Abia state either feels he is immune to the disease or his people don’t matter to him?
While addressing the press, he advised against spreading false info about the virus and he also set up a committee to look into ways of ensuring the pandemic does not reach the state and for ways to protect Abians.
The governor, however, is advised to do the needful first and self-isolate for the sake of the people around him as advised by the ministry of health and the NCDC
