Wase said the donation was in appreciation of the measures taken by the state government so far in dealing with the pandemic through several measures.
“We have noted with delight some of the major steps you have taken to curtail the disease especially by restricting movements which has done a lot to limit the spread of the pandemic.
“We have seen you deploy technology in the borders to enforce the movement of people which largely limited importation of the disease”, he stated.
Receiving the donation, Governor Simon Lalong, who expressed appreciation for the gesture of the National Assembly Plateau caucus said the donation again showed their patriotism and unity towards the progress of Plateau State.
Lalong said, “Your presence here is a show of unity and solidarity for the good of our people. I have keenly followed what you have been doing individually for your constituents and other vulnerable people in the State. Nevertheless, you have deemed it necessary to contribute to the State COVID-19 Trust Fund. We are very grateful.”
