Kwara State government officials who had contact with the late chief of staff, Aminu Adisa Logun, have proceeded on self isolation and their samples taken for Covid-19 test, a statement said on Wednesday.
“Cabinet members, personal staff of the late chief of staff, and some medical personnel who had varying degrees of contacts with the late technocrat have now proceeded on self isolation,” commissioner for communication Henrietta Adenike Afolabi-Oshatimehin said in the statement.
According to her, government has also suspended physical meetings of any kind on official matters until further notice, directing increased use of virtual platforms for such engagements in order to limit physical contacts.
“It is important to note that Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq last had any physical contact with the late chief of staff on April 6 during the launch of the conditional cash transfer for the elderly. The governor’s subsequent meetings with the deceased had all been virtual. Similarly, the state executive council meetings and most official engagements have consistently been held through virtual platforms in line with the Covid-19 protocols.
“Flowing from this, government officials are again urged to avoid physical meetings as well as keep to safety measures,” the commissioner said.
