He said the Governor is not leaving any stone unturned in tackling the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

To start its assignment, the team fumigated the environment of the Local Government Council Headquarters. They were thereafter led to other State Government-recognised markets and institutions in Ngor Okpala, where they also carried out the fumigation exercise. Nkwoala Market in Eziama, Ngor Okpala, was among the places fumigated.

The Representative of the IMC Chairman, Hon.
