“Nigerians should adhere to safety measures as advised by governments and health experts by staying at home, observe social distancing, avoid overcrowded environment, and wash their hands frequently.

“Use face masks among other safety protocols. If this is done, it will go a long way in curtailing spread of the disease and people will be safe,” he said.

The chairman also urged residents of the state and other Nigerians to maintain personal and environmental cleanliness in order to remain healthy.

The council commended the measures adopted and steps taken by the Nasarawa State Government in curtailing the spread of Coronavirus.

“We are also commending the media, security agencies, religious bodies and traditional rulers among other relevant authorities in the fight against the virus in the state,” he said.

Besides, he urged the youths to be law abiding, respect constituted authorities and live peacefully with one another for development to thrive.
