He said the sensitisation programme  was taking to  market centres, security agencies and it yielded positive result.
“Basically I used the occasion to treat two issues, the COVID-19 and Lassa Fever and it yielded positive result because, after the  programme I can tell you that seven out of 10 of our market  are now  very clean.
“As I speak, we have worked all over our council area with  the aid of Okada riders and dispatch riders and in all these there was no confirmed case  of the virus in my local government.’
