Lady Monica Ada Eze who doubles as the Technical Assistant (TA) to Governor Umahi, in a press statement she personally signed and circulated to the Media in Abakaliki, the capital of Ebonyi State highlighted that the thoughtful act of the governor will surely enable beneficiaries to survive the lockdown effects of the COVID 19 Pandemic in the State.
Monica postulated that this intervention by Governor Umahi coming at a period when most State Governors are finding it difficult to pay their January Salaries to their workers simply positions Governor Umahi ahead of his pearls in terms of tackling and handling of the welfare issues affecting their people.
Monica better known as Ada Ebonyi commended her boss for the efforts he has made to ensure that the dreaded COVID 19 Pandemic doesn’t step its ugly feet into the soil of Ebonyi State by personally leading the Committee set up by the Ebonyi State Government to tackle the menace of this dreaded virus as the Governor is seen touring and testing people of the State of the dreaded virus personally.
Monica further reports that for the Governor to set up two Quarantine centres in the State and for ordering the arrest of those who may have entered the State illegally or have escaped from been checked accordingly demonstrates his unconditionally love for his people.
To ensure complete compliance to the State Government directives and policies of locking out the dreaded virus from the State the Governor directed all the Executive Assistants (EAs), Senior Technical Assistants (STAs) and all the Technical Assistants (TAs) numbering over two thousands to join hands with the relevant organs of the COVID 19 committees in the State to tour all the markets and worship centres in the State to ensure total compliance.
She appealed to citizens and residents of the state to comply with government’s directive to observe social distancing, frequent washing of hands and regular use of hand sanitizers. Lady Monica further appealed to the people to report to a nearby hospital when they feel unwell.
The Governor’s TA on Media expressed sincere appreciation to The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for including Ebonyi State among the new States to be assisted with Testing facilities. Other States Capitals in this category include Kano, Sokoto, Maiduguri, Kaduna, Jos, P/Harcourt, Abakaliki.
“Once this is done it will go a long way to help the State Government to keep in check the effect of the virus in the State” she said.
In conclusion, Monica pleads with the rich men and women, Churches, nongovernmental organizations and captains of industries to emulate the likes of Dangote and others by coming to the aid of the State Government in her efforts to tackle the menace of this dreaded virus in the State by donating handsomely towards assisting the State in this regard .
While urging Ebonyians to stay safe, Monica counselled the good people of the state to remain ceaseless in prayers, assuring that the war against the pandemic will be won.
TA Monica, counselled that anybody who may have come in contact with a confirmed corona virus case & experience fever, cough or difficulty breathing should please call NCDC as a matter of urgency at 080097000010 for immediate attention. Let us all take responsibility and save our nation from this dreadful menace.
