Since Coronavirus hit Nigeria, Governor Wike is one of the Governors that has been putting every necessary effort for the virus not to spread round Rivers state.
Here is a deep message Governor Wike today;
It is imperative that all companies or organizations doing full or partial business in the state support efforts at containing coronavirus. “Failure to support us shows total disregard for corporate social responsibility.
I want to sincerely thank all individual and corporate donors who have supported us in the fight against COVID-19.
At the appropriate time, the Rivers State Government will publish their names in National Dailies and Local Tabloids for posterity. These individuals and corporate organizations are indeed friends of the State.
My administration chose to be proactive because it places premium on the lives of Rivers people. We were the first state in the Federation to close our borders. This attracted criticisms, but we have been vindicated as other states emulated this positive strategy.
Even though we have recorded two cases ,the index case has been discharged while the second case is doing well at the Treatment Centre.
It is obvious that our containment strategies: closure of borders, closure of schools, closure of markets, closure of night clubs, closure of Cinemas, as well as the ban of public worship, ban of public burials and weddings have helped to check the spread of coronavirus.
This is in addition to the conduct of our healthcare professionals who have demonstrated a high level of patriotism and sacrifice in contact tracing and case management.
Those plotting to disrupt the distribution of palliatives will be sanctioned. Some persons only criticise for the sake of political mileage and not to add value.
Rivers State Security Council will lockdown some parts of Port Harcourt where some people continue to disregard Government directive of social distancing.
