Anambra State Won’t Be Locked Down — Commissioner

Anambra State Won’t Be Locked Down — Commissioner

The Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, C. Don Adinuba has explained that the State Government does not intend to place the state on Lock down contrary to anxiety being expressed by some members of the public.

Adinuba in a statement yesterday said the explanation became necessary because “A lot of people have in the last couple of hours been calling government officials in Anambra State to ascertain the veracity or otherwise of the rumour that there will be a lockdown in the state from 9am tomorrow, Monday, April 6, 2020.”

He said “those peddling the rumour allege that no vehicles will be allowed to move within the state and that food and pharmaceutical as well as medical markets will from 9am tomorrow (yesterday) no longer be permitted to operate. In other words, the state will be on lockdown”.

He explained that the rumour was false and unfounded and that the government has not changed its policy on the measures taken to protect the people from the coronavirus which is devastating the world, including Nigeria.

He said: “Ndi Anambra are enjoined to continue to maintain social distancing by keeping away from people by 6 feet. They are also encouraged to regularly wash their hands for at least 20 seconds with water and soap, and pour the water away if it is in a bowel.”

“They are, in addition, advised not to dry their hands with handkerchief or towel because it may be infected. They are also encouraged to use hand sanitiser often. They are enjoined to cover their mouths and noses with disposable tissues while coughing or sneezing. The use of face masks everywhere they go is highly advised”.

He, however, said that buses and tricycles remained restricted to the limited number of passengers they are allowed to carry and that the state’s boundaries with other states remain closed.

He expressed satisfaction that people living in Anambra had complied very well with the guidelines and directives by the government on how to spread the coronavirus.

“This is one of the critical reasons why our state has so far been spared the scourge of COVID-19. Let us continue to make Anambra the safest state in Nigeria in every sense of the expression”, he concluded.
