Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has directed the 193 wards across the state to form their committees, to deepen enlightenment on the COVID-19 pandemic and the campaign against community transmission of the virus.
“The Governor ssif the time called for everyone to take responsibility for our collective safety.

He, therefore, encouraged all the wards in the state to form their own COVID-19 committees.

“They can pattern their own committees after the template already established at the state level,” spokesman to the Governor Rafiu Ajakaye said in a statement on Monday.
“They can have various subcommittees especially in the area of public enlightenment on COVID-19 and how to prevent its spread, and how to support those who are the hardest hit by the stay-at-home directive in their areas.”
Quoting the governor, Ajakaye said the main focus was for “our people to take ownership of the campaign against the spread of the virus in their respective communities and areas of influence.”
AbdulRazaq commended the Offa Descendants Union (ODU) and Alanamu Ward for establishing their COVID-19 committees to support the government.
“We want to see this initiative replicated across the state. We all need to take responsibility for our health. We commend ODU and Alanamu Ward for their proactiveness.

“This has helped to deepen awareness in these areas. Government is very pleased with the development. It is commendable,” he added.
The government has also commended the Federal Government for the technical and material supports being offered to the State, including the recent donation of one ventilator and three oxygen concentrators by the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).
