From Yusuf Mairiga Shekarau, Jos
The member representing Jos south in the Plateau state House of Assembly, Hon. Gwottson Dalyop has openly criticized directives issued by the state government to completely lockdown the state for a period of one week effective midnight Thursday, April 9th 2020.
This is coming shortly after Governor Simon Lalong’s state broadcast where he gave the matching order with a vow to fumigate the metropolis and the remaining Local Governments Areas of the state.
Hon. Gwottson, in an open letter addressed to the Governor equally sought explanations upon how the fumigation exercise is set to be carried out.
The member also tasked the state government to ensure providing timely information upon how funds raised through the interim account for Covid-19 response is spent, adding, that the spending must be judicious.
