The demise of such a stabilizing force at this critical phase where Nigeria is faced with a national health emergency is both a huge loss to the Federal Government and the entire Nation.

Mallam Abba Kyari was known for acts of charity to the less privileged. In honour of his deligence and service we call on Nigerians to care for one another during these difficult times. We encourage citizens who have the means to extend philanthropic relief to the poor even as the Federal Government rolls out its palliative measures. We believe that we will only be able to overcome the impact and side effects of this pandemic if we support each other through these trying times.

The Group commended the proactive steps taken by the Presidential Task Force on COVID19 under the leadership of the Secretary to the State Government. We urge the Presidential Task Force on COVID19 to explore partnerships with non-governmental organisations, civil society groups, and ad-hoc volunteer groups to build a critical mass that will make the prevention advocacy campaign more effective.

The statement also urged the Federal Government to look inwards and explore local options for mass production of face masks, hand sanitizers, and other health essentials.

They urged citizens to abide by the directives of the Federal Government and the front-line experts led by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control. The policies that have been put in place may appear extreme, yet they represent our only chance to prevent the spread of COVID19 and save as many lives as possible.

They however advised people to Keep social distance, maintain hygiene protocols as well as Stay home directives.
