The Honourable Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire has warned State government that politics should be left out of COVID-19 response as there should be no politics in responding to a disease particularly one as infectious and contagious as Coronavirus.

While responding to questions from Journalists at the Press Conference in Abuja recently, he said Nigerians should remove the realm of politics, religion and everything else and face this disease that is a threat to this country.

He said at a time, health workers complained that they were not seeing progress in certain States’ response and it is part of what has led to strikes in various areas, there were strikes here and there; for some, it was over pay; some were over PPEs and so on.

“The response of the Government was to make sure that first, everyone has the PPEs they need, and you have your pay as agreed and also your trainings, instructions and if possible your targets and that should solve the problem and take the entire COVID-19 response away from politics”, he said.
