As recorded cases of coronavirus continues to increase in Edo State, one of the leading governorship aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the September 19 election in the state, Engr. Chris Ogiemwonyi, has suggested a total shut down of the state like many other states have done to check the spread of the virus in their states.
He said, “I am in Abuja and we’ve been home for two weeks, and Mr President said there should be a further two weeks extension. Lagos State government has done the same, same in Ogun. Even our nearby state, Delta, has done that. On the other side, Anambra has done that. Then you begin to wonder, our neighbor, Delta has recorded just three cases, why haven’t we recording 14?”
