In a Press Release obtained from his official social media page, the former CBN urges the state government and federal government to putlre efforts in curtailing the spread of this pandemic disease. Below is the official statement of the Ibadan born financial expert and business man.
Following the announcement that my brother, Oyo State Governor, His excellency Engineer Seyi Makinde has tested positive to COVID19, I want to use this opportunity to wish him a speedy recovery and abundance of health going forward.
His decision to self-isolate in line with government’s measures to reduce the transmission of the virus is right and commendable. May God give us strength in these trying times.
This is a time for us all to shun petty politics, and for all hands to be on deck in order to contain and eradicate COVID19 in our dear state and Nigeria as a whole.
We must support the efforts of government by following the safeguarding guidelines they have provided as this will help reduce the spread of the virus.
The government must also be supported by capable and well meaning indigenes and residents to provide adequate treatment to those who are already infected.
In my personal effort to provide support in these trying times, in addition to various programmes we currently have in place to provide succour to the people which include but not limited to distribution of preventive items like sanitisers, nose masks, hand gloves, palliatives like food, water and minimal cash transfers to the indigents and the needy, we will also be liaising with relevant authorities including the NCDC and UCH to see how we can support their current medical initiatives and crisis management plan.
COVID-19 is a global medical epidemic that must be taken seriously by all and sundry, please stay safe and keep others safe by following government guidelines. At this crucial moment, we need not politicise any of our efforts and avoid hate speech as issues bothering on our health concern our lives and we must all be our brothers’ keeper for us all to remain alive and fulfil our destinies. May God help us.
Bayo Adelabu FCA, FCIB
