Following recent rising cases of confirmed covid-19 cases in Lagos, HRH Alhaji Ahmed Haruna Kuraja, the Sarki overall and chairman of the chieftaincy council of Arewa community Alimosho local government, has charged Arewa community residents in the state to guard against complacency, adding that, daily revelation continue to prove the Delta variant as more deadly and quickest to cause death.
Buttressing his call with recent situation report as conveyed in the Lagos state governor’s message to Lagosians, where His Excellency Mr. Babajide Olushola Sanwo-Olu, averred that over five thousand (5000), new cases have been admitted at the infectious disease hospital (IDH) Yaba, within a space of one month and series of deaths recorded in the past week, it became very pertinent that, strong worded signals are sent out by stakeholders to their respective jurisdictions.
Continuing the royal father said, the incident commander His Excellency Mr. Babajide Olushola Sanwo-Olu, who recently earned the recognition and award for the overall best governor in the management of the pandemic in the country, needed to be fully supported by Lagosians of all shades to win the fight decisively.
The fact that, the current variant is asymptomatic, makes the situation even more delicate, said the traditional leader, calling on his subjects and the entire Arewa community Lagos to adhere strictly to the non pharmaceutical protocols approved by experts towards all round defeat of the dreaded pandemic.
Concluding, the Sarki overall, commended the Lagos state governor and his team for the sustained fight against the common enemy, assuring him that, the assembly of Sarkis under his stewardship will equally sustain sensitization efforts within individual communities and by extension across the entire state as their token support to ensure Lagos wins emphatically.
