The Kogi State Government has embarked on fumigation of schools across the twenty one Local Government Areas of the State to protect pupils and students from contracting Covid-19 and ensure a safe learning environment.
A statement signed by the State Commissioner of information and Communications, Mr. Kingsley Fanwo says the move is in line with global protocols against the pandemic that has not affected the State.
It explains that what has staved the pandemic from the State was the proactive steps taken to ensure the pandemic doesn’t ravage the State.
In another development, the State Government has commenced sensitization on the need for people living in flood prone areas to immediately vacate to avert flooding.
This is been carried out by the Ministries of Environment, Information and communications as well as the Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs across the Local Government Areas prone to flood to create awareness.
It would be recalled that the Confluence State has been affected by flooding over the years.
