I advise Deltans and all residents in the state to diligently observe the prescribed protocols by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC); the Presidential Taskforce on Covid 19 and the state guidelines”.

He also said;  “Avoid mass gatherings as much as possible; wash your hands regularly with soap and running water; wear face mask in public and keep social distancing. Once again, I emphasise that Covid 19 is real. Don’t joke about it please. Thank you all and God bless you. Stay safe”.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures in  Nigeria, Rt Hon   Abubakar Suleiman,  has felicitated with the Deputy Chairman of the Conference and Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori  for surviving Covid -19.
