Kogi State government has rejected the existence of any Coronavirus disease recorded for the state as announced by the National Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, in the state nationwide update on Thursday
The state government made this known in a Facebook post by the Kogi State Commissioner for Health, Dr Saka Haruna who mentioned that the ministry and indeed the state government remain unaware of any such case, just has it denied knowledge of the first index case and another. He described the new figure credited to the state as mere assumption.
“The purported New Case: We are not aware of who the patient is, where and when the Test was conducted,” he wrote.
Over the weeks, there has been a kind of contradiction and misfigure the Kogi State government and the National Council For Diseases Control (NCDC) over what the government described as “opaque Ness” in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.
The state further accused the NCDC of commercialising the pandemic, a venture Governor Yahaya Bello said that he would ‘not to be a part of.’
