Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, has asked Kogi State Governor , Yahaya Bello to apologise to the people of the State for misleading them on COVID-19.

He stated this in a statement  issued on Monday while reacting to the lockdown order imposed in some part of the state.

He said the governor did not show the required seriousness in leadership in the fight against the pandemic in the state.

Ologbodiyan said the Governor need to apologise for also not funding even the committee he set up to fight the pandemic and for not providing palliatives to the people like was done in other states.

He therefore urged the people of Kabba Bunu to be strengthened by the fact that measures would be put in place for their safety and well-being, describing COVID-19 as a global pandemic and not a death sentence.
