Our correspondent learnt that Ms. Grace Bassey the People's Democratic Party, PDP, councillorship candidate for Ward 7 in Bakassi led an advocacy/outreach campaign against Covid-19 to her constituents while making sundry donations. 

Bassey, while addressing the audience in the afternoon, said she was there to lend her voice against the ongoing ravaging pandemic. While streesing that the novel Coronavirus is real, she added that the members of the constituency should observe all the advertised precautionary measures of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, the Presidential Taskforce against Covid-19, and the Federal Ministry of Health especially maintaining physical/ social distancing, use of nose masks, use of local alcoholic gin to sanitise the hands in the absence of running water and staying at home.

On his part, Mr Cletus Bassey, a civil society practitioner with the Partners for Peace in the Niger Delta, P4P, who demonstrated why medical practitioners sue for the use of nose masks, told the audience that the aerosols could pass from person-to-person through the careless sneezing of an already infected person. So, the call for nose mask is to frustrate that person-to-person infection. While admonishing them to take their life seriously by adhering to medical precautions from the state and federal governments, Bassey charged the rural dwellers to maintain social distancing.

Beneficiaries of Ward-7 comprises all and sundry including children, men, women, adults from the ten (10) Villages, namely, Ikot Okon, Ikot Effiom, Akpab,Ikot Nkoho Anie, Abakpa, Usung Esuk, Ikot Otu, Ikot Abok, Amadu Ikot Effiom and Refugee camp.
