He commended them for their magnanimity ranging from hand sanitizers, food items, cash sums of money which he said some had been distributed, while other are awaiting distribution to the four quarters of Ogidi as they come in batches.
He therefore called for more of such donations to ensure that palliatives go round the vulnerable ones in the area so that they could be well fed to survive the coronavirusa pandemic, adding that the town union is not left out in the donation channel.
He however urged the governments at all levels to endeavour to procure testing kits to test everybody at the borders and ascertain their status as a better option, rather than continuing to close the borders blindly without knowing those who are carriers and those who are not.
