The governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi has blocked Almajirai from entering the state as a move to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the state.
He said that the directive which was adopted by his government was reached during the usual state security council meeting held on Wednesday.
Umahi shunned at allowing people to travel under the present status of COVID-19, saying it was unacceptable.
He also emphasized the need for stricter adherence to the ban of inter-state traveling until the pandemic is over.
” We will not be afraid to say that there will not be Amajiris in Ebonyi state and the Northern Governors I commend them, they said go to your state of origin. We have to as a people to begin to tell ourselves the truth.” He said.
He further instructed the serving Chief security officers in the state not to allow any cow into the new government house or it’s environs.
“I have directed with the Chief security officer to meet with the security people. Please I don’t want to see any cow within the premesis of the centenary city. How can I be struggling with cows to come into government house. Please, in the entire centenary city, I don’t want to see any cow.
“Not just government house, anywhere that is called centenary city; international market, the mall. This is insulting. So, security people should do meeting with the cattle rearers whether it is Hausa cows or Igbo cows because I can also see some Igbo cows and I don’t want to see it again.
” Anyone we see,Attorney General, you move to court to get order of the court to auction it. So, we will not see that again, we will not allow that again” He ordered.
