Covid-19: Anambra monarch decries non-compliance, engages women

Traditional Prime Minister of Obosi, Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra, Chief Austin Anibogwu, has called on the people of the community to join forces in the fight against coronavirus spread in the area.

He regretted the non-compliance of the Covid-19 protocols among the people of the area, challenging women to take advantage of their position in the society to assist in sensitizing the locals.

Anibogwu spoke weekend through the President of the “Umuada” daughters of the village, Mrs Osita Anadi during the presentation of palliatives to women born in Mmakwu village Obosi but married to other parts of the community and beyond.

The palliatives included bags of rice, semovita, ground oil, salt, dryfish amongst other items.

He said, “Women are great mobilisers, please join hands with the government and leaders of the community to fight against the community spread of the coronavirus by constant sensitisation of the people around you.

“Pass the message in your age grade meeting, women meeting, church meeting, in all the markets in Obosi, let fight this scourge together before it overwhelms us.

“The taskforce formed in the community means well. Let people listen to them and observe the rules, Obosi is not doing well in keeping the rules, let us all join hands to talk to the people, who do not believe in the scourge.”

Anibogwu said the existence of the virus was not in doubt, urging the people to heed the call to obey all safety rules, including regular hand washing with soap, wearing of face mask, keeping social distancing, amongst others.

One of the beneficiaries, Mrs Gladys Okanueme, an 87years old member of the women group was full of gratitude to the benefactor for the palliatives, pledging to heed to the call.
