By Centus Nweze
Yahaya Bello, governor, Kogi State, again, resumed his controversial stance on COVID-19 pandemic and stating that every inch of his state compromises the efficacies of the virus.
He says that every inch of Kogi State is a potent cure for the disease pandemic.
As such, he insisted that there is no covid 19 pandemic in the state and warned those making merchandise of the disease to desist or be ready for the wrath of God.
The governor gave the assurance and warning on Sunday in Lokoja, during the flag off of the Federal Government 774,000 special public works to cushion the effect of the pandemic.
Bello who decried the activities of some nations, corporate and individuals who created and sold the virus as a means to rip off the unsuspecting countries.
He regretted that some highly placed persons in government have made the nation a drain pipe, siphoning resources meant for the development of critical infrastructures, saying, he has refused to join the bandwagon to marketing the covid 19.
According to the governor, “since the HIV/AIDS broke out in 1985 with its devastating blow on humanity, the drug manufacturers of the west could not till today come up with a vaccine. The highest they could achieve was supplements.
“Why, with less than a year of the outbreak of covid 19, the west and China have started jumping on themselves with their vaccines. One does not need a soothsayer to know that there is high level politics and marketing going across the globe.
“Last year, most states were under lockdown for months. Many died from hunger and starvation, for a Virus that ordinarily has 95% chances of recovery without using drugs depending on the health status of the patient. This is why I have maintained my stand not to lock down my state
“I however, warned those who are hiding under the covid 19 to milk the country to stop or God Almighty will visit them with anger.
“I, hereby appealed to states corporate organisations and individuals suffering from the covid 19 to transport their patients in their ambulances or any other means and I can assure you as their vehicles touched the kogi soil, they will be instantly healed after they must have paid our fees. With the fees we can improve on our healthcare infrastructures and other development needs of the state ” he assured.
