Akwa Ibom state has announced that it will commence aggressive testing of people in the state to know the actual number of COVID-19 cases in the state.

This was revealed in a statement released by the state’s Commissioner for Information, Charles Udoh.

Udoh advised residents to cooperate with government officials to carry out these tests as this will help the government to make an informed decision as to whether the lockdown order issued by the governor will be lifted.
