The Special Assistant to the Governor of Delta State on Political Matters, Chief Emmanuel Erezih has urged Deltans to comply with the directive of the State Government which was issued to stop the importation of the deadly coronavirus (Covid-19) into the state.
He made this call following reports of unrest in Warri where it has been alleged that a military personnel killed one Mr Joseph Pessu as a result of the stay at home order.
Chief Erezih stated that this is a time for sober reflection and calm, as this disease has impacted and affected the whole world in a very unexpected way and Deltans should remain united in the face of these crises.
While noting that the State is yet to record any case of the virus, he however charged Deltans to adhere to the strict guidelines given by the State to prevent its importation.
In his words, “as law abiding citizens we must cooperate with the Government to defeat this common enemy, let us not look for the enemy in each other’s faces but in Covid-19 that has come to kill and destroy. As law abiding Deltans, we should all endure a little as nothing good comes easy. We as a people will surely overcome”.
Chief Erezih also hailed the State Governor, Sen Dr Ifeanyi Okowa for his swift intervention and efforts to bring the violent situation in Warri under control, “it is obvious that the protection of the lives and property of Delta citizens is of utmost priority especially during this lock down period”.
