A socio-cultural group known as Ngas Women Development Association, NWDA, National body in Nigeria has taken the campaign against the dreaded corona virus to the grassroots in local dialect.
In a video clip awareness, the national President of the Association, Mrs. Godia Kitgakka addressed the Ngas Women on the need to abide by the world rules on preventing the spread of the virus.
She specifically advised the Ngas women whom according to her are known for their love for dancing to avoid overcrowded gathering that will create room for them to touch one another or exchanging pleasantries.
The campaign which also featured a song by Mrs. Nakuchung, demonstrated prohibition of handshaking, nose, mouth and eyes touching as well as maintaining social distancing.
Mrs. Kitgakka while speaking with our correspondent, said she felt creating the awareness in a local dialect will help in reaching out to especially women at the grassroots who majority are not understanding English or Hausa.
She urged the women to support government in the fight against the virus by maintaining personal hygiene and sustain prayer for God intervention.
The initiative is coming at a time that government at all levels are using all channels of communication to create more awareness on preventing the spread of the virus nationwide.
