The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has deployed about 40 additional vehicles for the Presidential Task Force (PTF) to support the national emergency against the Coronavirus pandemic.
The deployment of the vehicles by INEC was in response to request by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on combating COVID-19.
Thirty (30) pick up vans, according to the Prof Mahmood Yakubu-led INEC, have been deployed to Kano to facilitate the movement of medical personnel for massive contact tracing and testing in the State, while nine (9) vehicles have been assigned to Plateau State.
The INEC National Commissioner and Chairman Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye confirmed this in a statement yesterday in Abuja.
The statement reads, “In response to request by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on combating COVID-19 for more vehicles to support the national emergency against the Coronavirus pandemic, the Commission has deployed about 40 additional vehicles.
“Thirty (30) pick up vans have been deployed to Kano to facilitate the movement of medical personnel for massive contact tracing and testing in the State while nine (9) vehicles have been assigned to Plateau State.
“The Commission wishes to reassure Nigerians that we will continue to join hands with all agencies and stakeholders to combat COVID-19 in the country. At the same time, we wish to reiterate our appeal to all citizens to stay safe by complying with the advise of the medical authorities”, it said.
It will be recalled that INEC had, few weeks ago, donated 100 vehicles to the Presidential Task Force (PTF) to support the national emergency against the Coronavirus pandemic.
