COVID-19: Northern Elders Forum Cautions Governors Against Playing Politics With Numbers


Northern Elders Forum has decried attempts by many State Governments to play politics with numbers for what appears to be expectations that more funds from the federal government and foreign donors will be allocated to them in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.

This was contained in a statement issued to newsmen on Thursday and signed by Convener, Northern Elders Forum Professor Ango Abdullahi, the Magajin Rafin Zazzau.

According to the statement, it is public knowledge that what the entire nation needs are good policies that protect all Nigerians; equipment and facilities for testing and treatment and resources to support people who will find it hard to stay at home without some palliatives during lockdowns.

The statement added that these requirements can be met with resources currently available, but they need to be put at the service of the public in a transparent and professional manner.
