The Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), Oyo State Chapter has commended Governor Seyi Makinde on the various scientific, strategic moves and steps taken so far to curtail coronavirus in Oyo State.
In a special release issued and signed by the Vice Chairman, Mr. Goke Adelakun, on behalf of entire members of the Institute in the state, the NIPR gave kudos to Governor Makinde for his proactive measures aimed at curtailing the spread of the virus.
The NIPR which is a body of professional image makers, saddled with the responsibility of managing reputation and image in the country noted with nostalgia the various steps of the government in the areas of formulating timely policy initiatives and laws to contain the spread of the coronavirus in Oyo State, in addition to various advocacy and sensitization programmes being carried out to prevent people from contacting the disease.
The NIPR equally lauded the action of the government in the area of constituting COVID-19 task force headed by the governor himself, that has been working tirelessly, which has also led to the establishment of diagnostic centre at Olodo and other centres. The group also commended the governor for equipping the centers with state-of-the-art medical equipments and putting trained medical and health personnel to combat the spread of the disease.
“We have no doubt in your style of leadership and governance which are people and result oriented, devoid of politics but genuinely and sincerely meant to fasttrack accelerated development and also improve the quality of lives of the citizenry.
“The NIPR as an Institute that believes in truth cannot but identify with your government in the task of building a new Oyo State and prevent scourge of diseases.
“We therefore seize this opportunity to also commend individuals, churches, corporate organizations, Associations, Institutions, Voluntary Organizations and other well meaning Nigerians that have shown that they were their brother’s keeper and that they have milk of human kindness flowing in their body through their donations both in cash and kind in this trying period.
“Finally, as we look forward to the celebration of Holy week and Easter celebration. May Christ’s victory over death show mercy on us and let His Pascal Light see us through COVID-19 period in good health of minds and body. Amen,” the release concluded.
