The Movement for Actualization of the Sovereign state of Biafra, MASSOB, at the weekend has tasked the south east governors to go and do their test, so that the citizens of the region will know their COVID- 19 status.
The call for the declaration of COVID- 19 status of the south east governors by MASSOB followed the rumour making the round in the zone that, some governors of the zone allegedly had handshake with Abba Kyari, the Chief Of Staff to the President who currently tested positive to Covid-19 during the national economic council meeting.
MASSOB who spoke to Ebonyi News Network in Abakaliki through Comrade Edeson Samuel, the National Director Of Information in a telephone interview, said there should be no waste of time for the governors to declare their status.
The group, equally tasked Senators from the five states that made up of the south east zone to also declare their status.
According to them: “As a matter of facts, it is the MASSOB desire that all the south east governors should go to test, so that we will know their status. Not only the south east governors, even our Senators and members of the House of Representatives should likewise do theirs.
“This is because, it is so unfortunate that governors have been going to test but South east governors have not done theirs.
“We are having rumours that some governors from the zone are testing positive. Base on that, we now encourage and advise them to go to test, so that we will be able to know, to avoid the escalation of the virus in the south east.
“At the same time, the governors of the south east should do something on the growing hunger in the zone by providing a palliative to cushion the effect of the lockdown.
“Hardship is growing on daily basis, and our governors and senators have not done anything about it, while other governors from other regions are already providing a palliatives to their people.
“Some of them are already fumigating their markets and other crowded areas to curtail the spread of the virus but we have not had anything from our governors in the south east zone.
“They should immediately do something for the masses to reduce the hardship, and as well, our governors should declare their status. They should be bold to say, we are free from this virus” the group stated.
