The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the Kogi 2019 gubernatorial election, Engr Musa Wada on Tuesday, has asked the incumbent governor Yahaya Bello to stop using COVID-19 as part of his Presidential ambition campaign, describing his last outburst against the use of yet-to-arrive vaccine, as careless and unnecessary misleading.
Considering the fact that COVID-19 pandemic is strictly scientific-based issue, which ought not to be merely political, the engineer raises alarm against the approach of governor Bello towards the pandemic.
Engr Wada, in a statement signed by his campaign spokesperson in Abuja, Usman Okai Austin, asked the All Progressive Congress (APC) led government to take a very definite stand on the pandemic, as the party is blowing hot and cold the same time.
He said the confusion in the land is because the APC lacks proper direction on the pandemic, that is silently killing across the world.
The PDP stalwart alleged that Medical Doctors in their large numbers have left the state, owning to the governor’s refusal to pay them their entitlements.
“One expects someone like Yahaya Bello to keep quiet over serious issues, and is unfortunate in APC as anything goes; Bello is being given a free hand and is creating more damages than necessary.
“Yahaya Bello’s government lacks human face, as he is the least in the society to talk on issue of serious concern, considering the fact that Kogi state under Yahaya Bello has the worst health facilities with Primary Heath Care PHC, and Hospitals in comatose.
“In Kogi state today, some remaining doctors use candles and local lamps to attend to patients and nobody dare talk,” he said.
