The Dean, College of Commissioners in Akwa Ibom State. Dr. Glory Edet, on Monday, April 27, led all Honourable Commissioners/Special Advisers to meet with Journalists to make known their sound state of health.
The exercise became necessary according to the Commissioners, in order to debunk the rumours and blackmail making the rounds on the social media that 8 Commissioners in the State tested positive for COVID-19.
The Commissioners who lined up in front of the State Banquet Hall, Government House, Uyo, came out in their face masks in the mode of the season, observing social distancing in compliance with directives on the prevention of COVID-19 pandemic.
“Let’s avoid spreading rumours that will instill panic in the people at this critical time but rather join hands with government to fight this dreaded pandemic”, Dr. Glory Edet said.
