Central Nigeria: Officials in Plateau State say citizens’ cooperation with government guidelines for the control of coronavirus accounts for its zero case status.

Media and health professionals sustaining awarenesses on the disease, have produced the “oneness of purpose demonstrated by Plateau people in the containment of the virus,” the State’s Commissioner of Information, Mr. Dan Manjang said, Sunday.

“The level of awareness on the coronavirus compliance in Plateau State is attributed to the relentless effort of journalists, health workers, and the strategic mobilization of the Governor Simon Lalong led Rescue administration,” Manjang said in a press statement.

The Commissioner appreciated religious and traditional leaders, as well as security agencies for joining in the fight against the virus.

Government according to him is aware of the hardships caused by the ongoing quarantine of the State against the disease.

“Palliatives” promised by the State Governor, Mr. Simon Lalong, will soon reach “those who deserve them,” said the Commissioner.

Meanwhile, citizens, Mr. Manjang pleaded, should, “in the spirit of Easter, reach out to those in need in their community.”
