Wednesday, before the commencement of the weekly state executive council meeting, requested the commissioners to submit themselves for test.
“We will not hold our executive meeting until the commissioners take the test,”
Uzodinma had reportedly said. The development, it was gathered, forced the shifting of the business of the day from the scheduled 11am to
1.40pm, with all the commissioners submitting themselves for the test which was conducted by a team of the state COVID-19 committee headed by the commissioner for health, who it was gathered was also tested. The test results returned on Sunday with all the 24 commissioners testing negative.
Confirming the development, Commissioner for Special Projects, Simon Ebegbulem, described it as evidence of the commitment of Governor Uzodinma at
ensuring the spread of the disease is curtailed and fully checked.
“When the governor gave the order, we thought he was joking, until he directed the commissioner for health to ensure all the commissioners subject themselves to the COVID-19 test.
“The governor’s proactive measures is a thing to be commended, and copied by
others. Why it not for such measures, we might as well be saying something else, as is being witnessed in some other states…,” he said
