Residents of Kogi state have discovered a warehouse where the COVID19 palliatives donated to the state were being kept.
This is coming barely 24 hours after a warehouse housing food materials meant for Plateau state residents was located in Jos.
However, the state government has responded to the latest development through its commissioner of Information, Hon. Kingsley Fanwo, in a statement read.
“The Kogi state government wishes to express deep appreciation to the good people of the State who turned out at the State Warehouse to share the remaining palliatives that were reserved for women and youth groups after Government had distributed the bulk of the palliatives to all the 21 Local Government Areas.
“The report at our disposal showed that Local Government authorities ensured the palliatives reached the masses and helped in ameliorating the hardship visited on our nation as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We urge our people to continue to stand tall in public conduct as Government will always put their welfare on the front burners.
“The government of Kogi state also wishes to sound a note of warning to miscreants that all constitutional efforts will be geared towards protecting shop owners in the state as any violation of law and order will be met with superior resistance by law enforcement agencies.
“Our people should go about their normal businesses as Kogi State remains safe,” Fanwo said.
