Coalition of Nigeria Youth Association ( CNYA) has commended Secretary to the Government of Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha for the measures taken to contain the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking in a press statement issued in Kaduna, Coordinator of the Coalition, Comrade Nuhu Sani Lere said Boss Mustapha and his team deserved commendation for their achievements since the Presidential Task Force (PTF) began its activities on Covid-19 to date.
He also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his 100% support for the PTF, while lauding the president’s policies and programs as improving the life of Nigerian youth.
Lere said it is important to note that the PTF has increased the number of laboratories for testing of COVID-19 from 15 to 26 states within the second phase of its work which is commendable. He said the PTF further trained additional 11, 409 health workers to boost capacity for case management and also their progressive improvement in the capacity of the health system to respond to the outbreak.
Lere further stated that the PTF has expanded the beds available for isolation and case management from 3,500 to 5,000 beds nationwide. He said with the achievements so far, the SGF, chairman of PTF and his team members deserve commendation from government and all Nigerians.
Meanwhile, the CNYA has urged Nigerian youth to shun any act that can endanger peace and unity of the country. National coordinator of the association, Comrade Nuhu Sani Lere, described youth as the building blocks of every society, adding that unless they are engaged in useful ventures and educated, the realisation of a vibrant nation would remain futile.
He said Nigeria was faced with a lot of challenges occasioned by unemployment, lack of education, corruption, insecurity among others. He expressed optimism that the nation would one day attain the dreams of its founding fathers.
