The emergence of Covid-19 case in Kogi State seem to have taken a political dimension, as the People Democratic Party (PDP) called on the People of Kabba and the entire Kogi people to hold President Muhammad and Governor Yahaya Bello responsible if anything eventually happen to the chief Imam of Kabba.
Report by Kogi report disclose that PDP accuse both the State and the federal government of Nigeria of playing with life of Nigerians.
"The Peoples Democratic Party says the All Progressives Congress government both at the state and Federal level led by Gov. Yahaya Bello and President Mohammad Buhari would be held responsible if anything eventually happens to the Chief Imam of Kabba.
The Chief Imam of Kabba, Sheikh Ahmad Abubakar Ejibunu is the Kogi index case of the Coronavirus disease. The NCDC confirmed his infection last week, but the state government has rejected the claim, tagging it fictitious.
The PDP Kabba Bunu chapter, in a statement today released at Kabba and signed by a community leader Chief Otitoju Abraham, said he has never seen a confused government like the APC, where government are run without vision and sincerity of purpose. The PDP Chieftain lamented that it is only in APC that the life of citizens don’t matter.
He further noted that the drama surrounding the health of the Chief Imam, which ought to have been the utmost priority, rather than dessipate energy on needless propaganda, shows that there is a hidden agenda around the covid 19 which is not yet known to Nigerians.
The Kabba Bunu PDP said Nigerians, and Kogites, particularly Kabba people should hold Gov. Bello and President Buhari responsible if anything untoward befalls the Chief Imam." Kogi Report
