Coronavirus: Benue govt set to review COVID-19 measures

Governor Samuel Ortom has reassured the people of Benue State that he will meet with the COVID-19 Action Committee on Wednesday, April 16, 2020, to review the measures put in place to prevent the spread of the pandemic in the state.

The Governor said the meeting, which was to hold on Monday, April 13, has been shifted to Wednesday, as a result of the public holiday.

He appreciated Benue people for their understanding and cooperation, noting that they have significantly complemented the efforts of the State Government against the virus.

Ortom further called for sustained cooperation from the people in the face of the difficulties the dusk to dawn curfew, closure of markets and other public places might have caused them.

Meanwhile, Governor Ortom will on Tuesday attend a joint security meeting of Benue, Nasarawa and Taraba States scheduled to take place in Lafia.

The meeting was scheduled to discuss renewed violence in border communities of the three states such as last week’s attack on Jootar in Ukum Local Government of Benue State by armed militia.
