In an effort to ravaging the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Yobe State the incumbent Governor Mai mala Buni didn’t stop people from exercising their Congregational prayers.
As it was all known, the Federal Government have enforced total lockdown on Lagos, FCT Abuja and Ogun for some weeks as one of the preventive measures to curb the spread of COVID-19, and also gave an option to the other states to follow some guidelines though Kaduna, Borno and few states had followed such measures of enforcing lockdown, but the executive Governor of Yobe State. Governor Mai Mala Buni looks thoroughly into the issues of COVID-19 around the state and chooses not to enforce lockdown, thereby he initiated a task force to fight the spread of the virus, asked people to maintain personal hygiene and respect the guidelines given by the center of controlling diseases in Nigeria”.
This is a sign of good leadership and he did an appreciable just of not letting people at home a midst of such poor economy.
The religious leaders have also recommended and appreciated the effort of Buni they considered him as someone who loves his people.
