'Kogi Is Not COVID-19 Free, I Know A Patient From Kaba' - Dino Melaye


Former Senator representing Kogi west, Dino Melaye  has confirmed the report of COVID-19 in Kogi state as announced by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

Recall that LIFESTYLEGIST on Wednesday, reported  that NCDC confirmed two cases of COVID-19 in Kogi, but the State however rejected the results, insisting the state is Coronavirus free.

Meanwhile,  the  former Senator on Saturday said he knows one of the COVID-19 patients from Kabba, therefore insisting it is authentic.

He said,

“I want to announce that the Covid-19 case in Kogi is real and authentic and cannot understand why any responsible government will want to deny and invariably kill her citizens,” he said.

“One of the cases is from Kabba and the victim is personally known to me. I cannot be part of those who will play politics with the lives of my people.

“COVID-19 is real but not a death sentence, if handled early enough. Family members of the Kabba victim who got a referral to Abuja from federal medical centre in Lokoja and all those who had contact with him should please surrender themselves for a test so as to curtail the spread.

“Kogi State government must come down from her imaginary high horse and start contact tracing to help curtail the spread. It is illogical to think we will be free with our proximity to affected states.

“God will hear our cry and heal our land. God bless Okun land! God bless Kogi west! God bless Kogi State.”
