The People Democratic Party in Kaduna State has prayed for the quick recovery of the state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, who tested positive for Coronavirus.
The opposition party called on the El-Rufai-led administration to relax the curfew in the state.
PDP in a statement released through its spokesperson, Abraham Alberah Catoh, called on the COVID-19 committee led by the deputy governor, Dr Hadiza Balarebe to redouble their efforts in informing the people of the state on how to test for Coronavirus.
The statement reads, “realizing that hunger is another dangerous disease, the party makes a passionate but strong appeal to the government to effect an intermittent but controlled relaxation of the curfew currently in force to allow people to either stock or re-stock household needs like foodstuffs, sanitary, drugs etc.”
“We believe this will add value to the commitment of the public to respect and obey government directives. It will also allow public-spirited individuals the opportunity to come to the aid of the needy members of our society.”
“This should be in addition to the phone lines dedicated by the government. The public outcry that the lines are not responding to callers should be looked into without further delay.”
“This is time for Public Confidence building and relevant government officials need to respond to complaints and advises swiftly. We are in an important project of Government/Public Partnership Programme which succeeds for our overall interest and safety.”
The party called on all members of the public to support the government, especially now and respect its directives.
The party added, “May God Almighty take the lead as we journey out of the woods. Amen.”
