The Senate has cautioned relevant stakeholders in the health sector against killing the nation’s economy by adopting foreign methods of fighting COVID-19 pandemic.

Senate’s admonition against imported measures of fighting COVID-19 came from the co-chairman of the Senate Joint Committee on Health and Aviation, Senator Smart Adeyemi (APC, Kogi West), during an interactive session with stakeholders in the Aviation and Health sectors on safety measures put in place in the wake of the resumption of international and domestic flights in the country.

Senator Adeyemi, who chairs the Senate Aviation Committee, said although based on realities on ground, COVID-19 was real but not potent in Nigeria and many other African countries.

According to him, based on that reality, it was wrong for relevant authorities in the country to be swallowing hook, line and sinker, measures being adopted to fight the disease in Europe, Americas, China and other advanced countries of the world.”There is something in us as Africans that is not in them in Europe and America, which made COVID-19 not to be disastrous here as it was there.

“In the light of this, measures that are detrimental to the livelihood and well-being of Nigerians should be avoided, so as not to kill the nation’s economy.

“People are not finding things easy outside there as a result of the way and manner COVID-19 pandemic is being fought in the country and as representatives of the people, feelers reaching us indicate revolt against government in December if drastic actions are not taken between now and then to make things easier” Adeyemi warned.
For his part, chairman of the Joint Committee, Senator Yahaya Oloriegbe (APC, Kwara Central), specifically faulted the policy adopted by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, which allows only private laboratories to carry out tests on intending travelers abroad at the cost of N75,000.

The measure according to him, is detrimental to average Nigerians who are being forced to cough out N75,000 for the test, which he described as unacceptable.

“The amount is too high, it should be brought down and public health Institutions laboratories should be equipped to carry out the tests”, Oloriegbe said.

Also, Senator Biodun Olujimi (PDP, Ekiti South), took up both the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire and coordinator of PTF, Dr. Sani Aliyu, who were both present, on the usefulness or otherwise of facemasks in Nigeria against the backdrop that some don’t comply with the directive and are free from COVID-19.
She said based on what she saw in many communities in Ekiti State last week, residents have jettisoned its usage of facemasks.
Responding, Dr. Aliyu said the three reasons of standard of living, demography and aggressive nature of African countries were identified to defy coronavirus.

_The true mark of a leader is the willingness to stick with a bold course of action, an unconventional business strategy, a unique product-development roadmap, a controversial marketing campaign even as the rest of the world wonders why he is not marching in step with the status quo. In other words, real leaders are happy to zig while others zag. They understand that in an era of hyper-competition and non-stop disruption, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to stand for something special.”_

*Asiwaju Asiru Idris* has demonstrated the above quality of a good leader, he is not just a leader but a reliable personality and a ladder to success for many successful youths and the ages.

I am not writing this article to gain favour nor trying to praise sing him but it is the reality that needed to be told to those who are still doubting who Asiwaju Asiru Idris is.

*Alhaji Asiru Idris* leadership style instill in people’s a hope for success by making them to belief in themselves.

I have dedicated the months and years to followed his post on social media, I must confess I enjoyed every single post from him, mostly his post always circle on how the people can be blessed positively and be impactful to the society, he is not just a social media dwellers just like other leaders but a true democrat whose love for the masses is second to none.

_Positive leaders empower people to accomplish their goals._

*Mukadam* has empowered the masses positively, he is a man who dwells in positivity, his desires for others to grow is what I loved about him.

He is more concerned about the success of others, leader like him are scarce commodities.

To be successful, you have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better, to get a little bit closer to your goals.

*Hon. Asiru* has maximized every opportunities in elevating many out of poverty, some were grateful while others choose another paths to shows their ingratitude characters which I know it will take them nowhere, some even went as far to back-stab him nor criticized him by trying to tarnish his image but they failed woefully because a man blessed by the Almighty God can not be curse by any human.

The more he accomplished, the more they get angry and jealous his sagacity intellect all because he is making positive impact across all board in Kogi west and Kogi State by extension.

Let them keep criticizing the man blessed by God, all I know is that the enemies will always failed in their biding to pull him down.

God bless the man of the people *Mukadam Asiwaju Asiru Idris*, may he continue to succeed in all that he wishes in life.

Chairman of the party’s National campaign council and Rivers State governor, Mr. Nyeson Wike who disclosed this to journalists in Benin City cautioned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) against such move.

Wike alleged that the INEC returning officer for Orhionmwon local government has disappeared after supervising collation of results in the area.
