Covid-19: Yobe govt shuts down borders

Yobe state governor, Mai Mala Buni, has directed the closure of the state borders from midnight of Tuesday March 31, 2020 to guard against importation of the dreaded Corona Virus into the state.

In a press statement on Sunday made available by the Director General on Press and Media Affairs to the governor, Mamman Mohammed, said the closure became necessary following the spike in spread of the virus in the country.

Buni further said, “in spite of the state’s zero status, government had taken adequate measures by establishing isolation centers with equipment and constituting a committee on Corona Virus under the chairmanship of the state deputy governor, Hon. Idi Barde Gubana.

“A rapid response team was also established to closely monitor any suspicious case as we remain grateful that we have no single case up to this moment.”.

While appealing to the people to cooperate with government and all the relevant agencies for a collective approach to the fight against the pandemic, also called on traders not to hoard essential commodities to hike up prices and create additional hardships to the people.
