Ikpeazu directs 17 Abia LGA chairmen, others to undergo COVID-19 test

Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu has directed all Chairmen of the seventeen(17) Local Government Areas of the State, together with their deputies, to present themselves for COVID-19 test.

This was even as Governor Okezie Ikpeazu had earlier directed all members of Abia State COVID-19 committee and those of the executive members who might have recently come in contact with the late Commissioner for Environment, Dr. Solomon Ogunji, to immediately undergo COVID-19 tests and isolate themselves thereafter pending the outcome of the tests.

DAILY POST recalls that the Abia Commissioner for Environment, Chief Solomon Ogunji, died last Sunday.

A statement signed by the State Commissioner for Information, John Okiyi Kalu, announced that Solomon Ogunji passed on at the Abia State University Teaching Hospital, Aba, after a brief illness.

Governor Ikpeazu however, in a release and obtained by newsmen, on Tuesday night said, “Further to my earlier directive on the testing of members of the State Executive Council, I wish to direct that all Transition Council Chairmen of our 17 LGAs, and their Deputies, present themselves for COVID-19 tests and thereafter isolate themselves pending the release of their test results.

“I urge all citizens and residents to eschew rumor mongering and get involved in the battle against COVID-19. Take responsibility because Abia is ready to win this battle with all hands on deck”.
