Gov. Uzodinma appoints Iwu to head Imo COVID- 19 Prevention Committee

The Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma has appointed the former INEC chairman, Prof Maurice Iwu to head  a 9-man coronavirus prevention committee. Prof Iwu, who is currently being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) for a case of money laundry had earlier this month attracted the world’s attention when he announced that his organisation,  Bioresources Development and Conservation Programme has unearthed a possible cure for the dreaded coronavirus.

Governor Uzodinma has, therefore, mandated the committee to ensure that the virus is not allowed to spread in the state.  He also asked the state Ministry of Health to activate emergency response platforms to improve surveillance and ensure that communities are enlightened about the virus.
