The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare has donated hand sanitizers, hand washers and other sanitary materials to staff of his ministry and the adjourning communities in the Federal Capital Territory.
Dare said the gesture was to help prevent the spread of the virus by ensuring that people adhered to hygienic instructions.
“We have a responsibility to help fight against the spread of COVID-19 by maintaining simple hygiene of hand washing, sanitizing our hands and maintaining social distance.
“We must be our brother’s keepers at a time like this. We must lend support to those infected and prevent further spread through consistent enlightenment and education.
“We cannot take anything for granted. All hands must be on deck to fight this scourge. The Federal Government through the Ministry of Health and other agencies are doing everything possible to manage the spread of the virus. We have a responsibility to lend support to these efforts.”
The minister, who has also banned all sporting activities across the country to mitigate the spread of the virus, has advised Nigerian youths to adhere strictly to safety measures put in place by the Federal Government.
