COVID-19 positive-Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, who is currently undergoing treatment, has received an exhilarating get-well-quick message from a non-governmental organization — Unubiko Foundation.

 

“You will emerge stronger,’’ the Foundation said in a statement by Dr Benjamin Isani, the Project Director on Tuesday in Umuahia, the state capital, given to Persecondnews.

 

While urging the governor to keep the faith, Isani asked the people to take the Covid-19 pandemic seriously.

 

“Contracting coronavirus is not a death sentence; therefore, there is no reason for anyone in the state to be in panic mode as we have had governors and other Nigerians who have beaten Covid-19.

 

“We are sure that Governor Ikpeazu will emerge stronger to continue to offer services to God’s own state,” he said.

 

The foundation pointed out that for the governor who has been relentless in the fight to curb the spread of the disease through massive awareness campaign and provision of palliatives to have contracted the disease shows that the “coronavirus is no respecter of any individual’’.

 

“It is imperative that our people in Abia especially those in Onyerubi, Arochukwu LGA should step up in their observance of the protocols established by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control in keeping safe maintaining high level of hygiene.

 

“We want to once again remind Abians that Covid-19 is not a death sentence but should be avoided by obeying all precautionary measures such as regular hand washing with soap under running water, use of sanitizer when necessary, wearing of face mask, physical distancing and other measures against the pandemic,” Isani said.

 

Persecondnews recalls that on Monday, Gov. Ikpeazu had tested positive for coronavirus after testing negative earlier following his test on May 30. However, he submitted another sample on June 4 which turned out to be positive.

 

Abia State Commissioner for Information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu, disclosed that the governor “has gone into isolation” and is receiving good care by a team of medical practitioners.
