ANAMBRA people have been urged to develop individual self-will in order to prevent a spread of COVID-19 pandemic in the state.

“To stop the spread of the virus, we must strictly adhere to all the rules”.

President of Kamac Foundation, a non-Governmental organisation, Chike Amos Ekwughe said while fielding questions from newsmen in Awka.

Mr Ekwughe praised the initiative of Anambra Government in allowing essential activities to resume in the state with strict lockdown of state boarders.

According to him, residents should encourage the state government to ensure we win the battle against the pandemic.

“This government is a people-oriented one that wants the safety of the people,” he said, adding that this gesture of government should be reciprocated by obeying the outlined health rules, so as to stop the virus.

“I urge ndi Anambra to take seriously the precautionary measures by government in containing the spread of coronavirus in Anambra, which remains steady hand-washing with soap under running water; use of hand sanitisers, maintaining of physical and social distancing as well as continuous wearing of face masks by all.

“Security operatives should also ensure that the state boarders are strictly locked down against strangers,” Mr Ekwughe said.

He condemned some people who take COVID-19 rules for granted by carelessly living their lives, cautioning them to do themselves and their loved ones well by keeping to hygiene.

He urged the taskforce in the state to ensure the rules would be implemented in offices, markets and other public places.

Kamac President, however, commended the state government and well- meaning people of Anambra for palliatives they have been providing for their people.
