The Plateau State Government has put a lot of thought into the effects of the lockdown on caregivers and the sick, and are said to be putting in place measures to ensure that the sick and vulnerable with legitimate proof of their status, and need for care will have the required care during this period.
We will continue to update this information as we get it from our sources.
In its bid to adequately cater for the needy during the weeklong lockdown period starting on Friday morning, the Jos North Local Government Council has provided food materials for the needy in the Local Government.
Our sources confirm that distribution of the relief materials is underway and efforts are also put in place to maintain social distancing and orderly distribution of the materials.
We urge all our people to adhere to the lockdown protocols and to seek help through the emergency lines provided.
We stand with us all in faith and courage during these daunting moments and remind us that as a resilient people, this too shall pass.
