The National council of Muslim youth organizations (NACOMYO) plateau state chapter is calling on government at all levels, to expedite reactiveness in providing palliative measures to the masses.
The press made available to our medium and signed by Ali Ali the state secretary NACOMYO, in Jos.
Ali disclosed that due to the hardships Nigerians may encounter, as a result of the planned National lockdown, he express fear that many citizens are going to be hit with hunger instead of the COVID-19.
He commended the measures taken so far by government in safeguarding the health and lives of its citizens against the ravaging coronavirus pandemic.
According to him, NACOMYO is also calling on the government to be more sensitive and responsive to the plight of its citizens whose living conditions are in need of daily food by urging the committee saddled with the responsibility of distributing the palliative in the state, under the chairmanship of the deputy governor Professor Sunny Tyoden, to be humane, expedient, prudent and transparent in discharging its duty and eschew sentiment of any kind.
He noted that before they should commence distribution of the palliatives on Saturday 25th April, 2020.
The youth are also throwing its weight behind the National Headquarters of JNI and the Supreme Council For Islamic Affairs and the outcome of the meeting of Ulamas from all the Islamic organizations which was at the instance of JNI Plateau State Chapter by calling on all a sundry, particularly the youth to completely heed to the directives and advises given by leaders in all ramifications.
Ali urged citizens to be obedience to leadership according to the Qur’an and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W).
We also urge and hope that, the Muslim Ummah, will use this month of Ramadan to fervently pray for Plateau State, Nigeria and the World at large to win the war against the dreaded covid-19 pandemic that has crippled global health, social and economic life, and peaceful coexistence of the entire humanity.
While commending its efforts of beefing security at the state borders, NACOMYO is also calling the attention of the Plateau State Government to as a matter of urgency strengthened the security of all the boundaries especially for those coming into the State .
However, there are complains of illegal activities going on where people are coming into the State on daily basis, as the recent discovery of the first case of the COVID-19 patient in the State on Thursday 23rd April, 2020 has authenticated the allegations and we pray, it stops at that.
The government is doing its best by being proactive and some unscrupulous and unpatriotic elements are sabotaging the efforts for their own personal gains which make them vulnerable too.
