Community leaders across Anambra have swung into actions to enforce State Government’s directives on ways of containing the Coronavirus pandemic.
Governor Willie Obiano had banned social events, funerals, weddings and other gatherings numbering above thirty persons, as part of Coronavirus preventive measures, but many individuals in different communities were flouting the directives.
The Governor who expressed dismay over the development said the State Government will hold the President-General accountable in any community where this directive is abused, warning that appropriate sanctions may be applied.
Speaking to our correspondent, the Caretaker Chairman of Ogbunike Progress Union, Comrade Ikegulu Chukwugozie, the President-General of Ifitedunu Town Union, Honourable Uchenna Nwoye, and the President-General, Abagana Welfare Union, Sir. Ikem Onwuadi, said before the State Government’s directives, their communities had been sensitized on the issue using village Chairmen, town criers, motorized announcement as well as various Church leaders.
They however explained that, while some individuals are postponing these activities, others who had fixed theirs before the Coronavirus outbreak were prevailed upon to step down all social functions to avoid convergence of over thirty persons.
While promising to step up actions to ensure total compliance, the community leaders commended the State Government for being proactive in containing the spread of the Coronavirus.
Hand washing stations, sanitizer gels were strategically placed in some of the communities visited.
