Furthermore, he called on the Federal Government and the Government of Rivers State to ensure working programs which will help alleviate the sufferings of the poor at this moment noting that the “hunger virus” kills faster than the coronavirus.
Finally, he made a clarion call to all Nigerians to give the government, governmental bodies, and health institutions all the support they need in order to curtail and eradicate this virus.
