The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for more prayers for speedy recovery of Ebonyi state Governor Dave Umahi, the wife of Benue state Governor Samuel Ortom, Eunice, as well as other Nigerians who have tested positive to COVID-19.
The party in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary Kola Ologbondiyan described the increase in the spread of the pandemic across the country as disturbing.
The PDP charged to Nigerians not to succumb to fear but at the same time redouble their vigilance and adherence to preventive measures of personal hygiene, social and physical distancing and early reporting of symptoms.
The party urged Nigerians not to let down their guard but remain conscious of the reality of COVID-19, especially with the easing of social restrictions in the country.
It also urged the Federal Government to intensify efforts in awareness campaign as well as providing economic stimulus to minimize social exposure and vulnerability of Nigerians in various sectors of endeavors.
The PDP restated its call for the concerted commitment of all citizens in reciprocating the sacrifices of our health workers and others on the front lines to defeat the pandemic in the country.
