The National Coordinator of Center for Peace and Environmental Justice, CEPEJ, Chief Comrade Sheriff Mulade has called on Deltans to seek divine intervention for the State and the household of the Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, the SSG, Mr. Chiedu Ebie and all other Government officials who have tested positive to COVID-19, so that they could recover fast and effectively tackle various development issues such as hunger and COVID-19 pandemic.
In a statement made available to newsmen, Chief Mulade, a Delta State born environmental and human rights activist said it was sad that Dr. Okowa and other govt. functionaries contracted COVID-19, and urged all Deltans to pray to God to protect the people of the state from the pandemic.
Chief Mulade who is the Ibe-Sorimowei of Ancient Gbaramatu Kingdom, said coronavirus is real and urged everyone to adhere strictly to all health protocols such as constant hand washing with soap and running water, the use of alcohol based hand sanitizers, as well as maintaining social and physical distancing, as the deadly virus does not respect anybody’s status.
He advised Deltans and other Nigerians to stay at home as much as they could, especially if they do not have any strong reason to go out of their homes.
