COVID-19: PDP Urges NCDC to Isolate Ondo Lawmakers


The Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State has urged the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to carry out testing and isolate lawmakers and other aides that accompanied Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to Abuja to purchase nomination and expression of interest forms of the All Progressives Congress.

It said it was concerned about the possibility of identifying, isolating and testing those who may have been exposed to the Governor particularly within the last 14 days.

The Ondo PDP said it was quite unfortunate that the actions of Mr. Governor during his trip to Abuja to submit his nomination form might have also exposed members of the House of Assembly who joined him on that trip.

A statement by its spokesman, Zadok Akintoye, said the party was glad that the Governor is at the moment asymptomatic.

According to the statement, “A viral video clearly showing the Governor sneezing into his hands in the midst of the honorable members of the House of Assembly, was shared online making it imperative that the National Centre for Disease Control takes immediate action in testing and isolating anyone who may have been exposed to the Governor within the last few days.

“Our prayers and best wishes goes to the Governor at these time and we hope that the lessons learnt would help in ensuring greater compliance with laid down rules for mitigating the spread of the virus.”
