Senator Dino Melaye, on Saturday, said that he is afraid for the core Northern States of Nigeria as Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases rise across the country.
Dino Melaye also appealed to the Governors of the states in the Northern region of Nigeria to be more proactive.
Dino made the appeal in a tweet on his official Twitter page.
“I’m afraid for the core Northern States. I appeal to the Governors to be more proactive and enforce all conditions stated by WHO and NCDC.
“COVID-19 is real, and it is a world leveler. It has no respect for status, religion or wealth. Please let’s not politicize with public health,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) announced that another 114 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in the last 24 hours, bringing to 1095 the number of confirmed cases in the country as of Friday night.
