Governor David Umahi who launched the program today at the Ecumenical Centre Abakaliki, the state capital, says the state government will continue to alleviate the condition of the masses, adding that since other protocols of the NCDC are not capital intensive save sanitisers, government according to him deemed it necessary to bridge the purchasing gap in other to ensure the virus is seriously decimated as the school is reopened for exit classes.
He urged the people to ensure it is used because the sanitizers went through various medical screening phases to emerge the best.
He said, “this is the best sanitisers you will find anywhere, everyone should please ensure they use it”.
Meanwhile, those who attended the launching went home with samples of the state made hand sanitizer.
