……Commences sensitization on flood
The Kogi State Government has embarked on massive fumigation of schools across the 21 Local Government Areas of the State to protect pupils and students from Covid-19 and ensure safe learning environment.
The State Government said the move is in line with global protocols against the pandemic that has not affected the state.
Officials told our reporters that what has staved the pandemic from the State was the proactive steps taken to ensure the pandemic doesn’t ravage the State. They said the directive to ensure Kogi pupils are kept safe came from the Governor of the State, Alh Yahaya Bello.
The exercise is coordinated by the Ministries of Education, Health, Environment as well as Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.
In a related development, the State Government has commenced sensitization on the need for people living in flood prone areas to immediately vacate those places to avert flood casualties.
The State Ministries of Environment and Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs are working across the Local Government Areas prone to flood to create awareness.
It would be recalled that the Confluence State has been perennially affected by flooding over the years.
The State Ministry of Information and Communications has also commenced sensitization on the State Broadcasting Corporation to create awareness.
