The intervention, is aimed at sensitizing the people to always adhere to COVID-19 protocol, amidst safety concerns in the second wave of the virus.

The outreach across major roads and the ever-busy King square in Benin City, attracted thousands of residents of the State including Nigerians who do not believe in the existence of the pandemic.

One of the facilitators of the group, Comrade Bevy Efe said, apart from the awareness, the exercise is to draw the Government attention to the deplorable state of the Edo State healthcare.

According to him, “Today, we are here on behalf of our President, Comrade Brown Osemwegie to compliment the State Government efforts to sensitize the people of Edo about the 2nd wave of Covid-19 pandemic.

“We have also enlightened Edo people to use their face masks and sanitizers in the public.

“We would be sharing nose masks, sanitizers and food to those that are hungry. Our organization is also using this medium to call on the State Government to pay proper attention to the healthcare facilities”.
