Commends state’s health workers
Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Frank Okiye, has urged residents in the state to take the opportunity provided by the state government for screening and testing to check the spread of coronavirus.
Okiye is among the seven patients who have fully recovered after testing negative twice for the virus.
He was treated with support from the state government. Some of the survivors were treated at the state’s isolation centres.
The speaker officially resumed for work on Tuesday, April 21, 2020, after necessary clearance.
He expressed appreciation to the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led government and the state’s medical team, noting, “The virus is not a death sentence. I thank the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led government, the medical team and members of my family and others who prayed for me.
