The People's Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday called for prayers for the speedy recovery of Ebonyi state governor Dave Umahi, wife of Benue state governor Eunice Ortom and other Nigerians who hired COVID-19.
The PDP National advertising secretary Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement on Saturday in Abuja, described the rise in pandemic cases across the country as disturbing.
He, however, reaffirmed the party's appeal to Nigerians not to succumb to fear, but to redouble their vigilance and adherence to preventive measures of personal hygiene, social and physical detachment, as well as early reports of symptoms.
He urged Nigerians not to let their guard down, but to remain aware of the reality of the virus, especially with easing restrictions in the country.
"The party urged the federal government to intensify efforts in the awareness campaign, in addition to providing economic stimuli to minimize social exposure and vulnerability of Nigerians in various sectors of activity."
The spokesman reaffirmed the PDP's call for the commitment of all citizens to repay the sacrifices of health workers and others on the front lines to defeat the pandemic in the country.
