The statement from the kogi state government through the commissioner for information in the state read:
“The attention of the Kogi State Government has been drawn to misinformation doing the round that government allegedly spent 7 billion naira to put in place an Isolation Center at the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja that was damaged by storm a few days ago,”
“The desperate rumor and falsehood peddlers even went further to attribute the statement to the Executive Governor of the State.
“The Isolation Centre at the Federal Medical Center was built for Lassa Fever for the institution by the State Government.
The Federal Medical Center approached the State Government to help them put in place an Isolation Centre where Lassa Fever patients could be kept before their transfer to Management Centres.
“It was never meant for COVID-19 and it is unfortunate that some falsehood merchants are peddling ridiculous figures around as the cost of the centre.
Can the rumor peddlers produce the contract papers or even the evidence of the Governor’s statement to that effect?”Kogi isolation centre didn’t cost 7bn naira
