Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the Kogi state Governor had maintained that a lockdown was not necessary, as the negative effects far outweighs the positives.

While hosting the Board of Trustees of Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation, Governor Yahaya Bello said COVID-19 is not a new disease in our climate, stating that ‘we have our ways of treating’ the disease.

He said;

“Let us stop this game. Nigerians are suffering. Instead of the lockdown with its attendant negative effects on the people, why can’t we turn it to employment opportunities, providing clothes for face masks to be imported to those countries who have the disease.

COVID-19 is not a new disease in our climate, we have our own way of treating it, that is what we should be exploiting rather than subjecting our people to hardship, hunger, and starvation through the lockdown.”

Governor Bello also maintained that the late Chief Judge of the state, Justice Nasir Ajana, did not die of COVID-19, stating that the late Judge had been managing his health since 2016. He said;

“We know his medical history, he was my brother, we know we have been managing him since 2016 but this time, he was completely isolated. No one was allowed to even speak to him until he passed away. We cannot afford to be playing games with lives of Nigerians, this must stop.”
