Delta APC blast governor Okowa over COVID—19
By Eluwa God’sgift from Delta
The Delta State All Progressive Congress (APC) through it’s Publicity Secretary Sylvester Imonina, Esq. has berated the effort taken by the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa led government to keep Deltans safe from the deadly CoronaVirus that is now a global epidemic.
In a brief to newsmen,the APC spokesman in the state opined that “To every conscientious government, the welfare of the people is the supreme law. However, in Delta State, the Government prefers playing to the gallery and/ or feeding her citizens with lies instead of tackling genuinely the problems besetting her citizens” He stated that It is on the above premise that the All Progressives Congress (APC), Delta State, and the good people of Delta State express their total disappointment on the way and manner the PDP led government in Delta State is handling the ravaging Coronavirus (Covid-19) issues in the State.
The APC mouthpiece stated that because of the insincerity of Delta State Government on Coronavirus issues, APC, Delta State, charged Delta State Governor, Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa to cut down his over-bloated appointments of Aides, rather than reducing the number of capital projects that are not enough for Deltans; in order to have enough funds to tackle the virus headlong whenever and wherever it surfaces in Delta State.Contrary to the claim of Delta State Government that isolation centres had been set up in different parts of Delta State to tackle any possible outbreak of Coronavirus epidemy in the State, the state chapter of the APC can authoritatively report that the PDP- led government has done nothing to prove any sign of seriousness to tackle the dreaded menace.
Sylvester Imonina, Esq. Futher stated that Information available to us reveals that apart from the Federal Medical Centre, Asaba, which has some semblance of an Isolation centre for Coronavirus likely patients, all other hospitals do not have Isolation centres and/or facilities to tackle Coronavirus related ailments.He inquired if governance must be built around lies in Delta State?
We dare to challenge the State Government to show to the public the facilities provided in the centres mentioned, apart from Asaba.
The APC, Delta State through its spokesman urged Deltans to live hygienic lives. Coronavirus is real but bemoaned the level of preparedness of the State Government to tackle same is built on falsehood.For the APC in the State there is nothing on ground to suggest seriousness on the part of government. He argued that a visit to more than eighty (80) percent of the said hospitals where isolation centres are purportedly located showed that they are home to darkness and Torchlights when it is dusk. Lack of drugs, understaffing and dearth of competent medical personels are synonymous with the hospitals.
He berated the lack of funding for health care in the state.He argued that Although, not an Isolation centre, General Hospital, Ozoro is a dump for inexperienced National Youth Service Corps medical Doctors. Same applies to most hospitals in the State. Deltans should therefore not be made to live on falsehood.
