Plateau Elders Forum, an Independent forum of Elders from all over  the State has  commended  the efforts of  the State Governments for the prompt proactive steps it is taking to prevent the  spread of the Covid 19  virus in the State.

Amb. Yahaya Kwande  the Convener of group  in a statement made available to newsmen in Jos said "We commend in particular the establishment of screening and isolation centres in Jos to handle any unanticipated occurrence in the State and other measures that government has taken in public interest.

He called on citizens of the state to support these measures to help control any eventualities.

Kwande  urged government not to relent in its action but to quickly take steps to open more screening and isolation centres in at least each senatorial zone in the state.

" Further, government must take steps to enforce the preventive measures announced by the governor Lalong  to ensure full compliance.

"we call on government to use the unwanted opportunity of this pandemic to review its public health policies. "Our general hospitals and health centres need to be reassessed and reequipped to meet the needs of the common man at minimal costs.

"In the same vein, the elitist practise of sending a privileged few on overseas medical treatment must be stopped immediately. The huge funds spent on this exercise for this priviledged few can be used for the benefit of many more
citizens in the state."
