The Kogi State government has told the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) that it had been proactive in dealing with COVID-19, which is why the state has recorded the level of success in dealing with the pandemic.
Commissioner for Information and Communication, Evangelist Kingsley Fanwo, said this while receiving the communications division of the NCDC in his office on Tuesday.
The NCDC is set to train Communications and Information Officers of Main Stream Media across the state for adequate skills in sensitising the people and also strengthen the effort of the state government to further dealing with the pandemic.
The Commissioner appreciated and welcomed the NCDC to the state, stressing that their presence will only work more on the strong foundation laid by the state government before now.
He added that the Kogi State COVID-19 Squadron Team inaugurated a Contact Tracing Team that is set to identify and locate persons manifesting COVID-19 symptoms.
