“I am elated with the efforts that led to the production of Ventilator, Body Disinfectant, Hand Washing and Liquid Dispensers, Body Temperature Gauges, and many more. These are manifestations of the abundance of talents in the country and the result of research.
“As a member of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, let me assure all compatriots that the Government is very much concerned about the long lockdown of the nation’s education institutions in particular and the economy in general.
”The Federal Government is doing everything possible to ensure that both lives and livelihood are given the top most priority that they deserve. We are aware that we must be alive to make a living while at the same time we are conscious that we must have a livelihood to stay a life.
