  • Kogi Doctors Accuse Governor Bello Of Frustrating Efforts To Test Patients With COVID-19 Symptoms

    The Association of Resident Doctors, Federal Medical Center, Lokoja, Kogi State, has accused the administration of Governor Yahaya Bello of frustrating efforts to test patients, who have COVID-19 symptoms in the state.

    President of the Association, Dr Nnanna Agwu, in a statement on Tuesday, urged the Federal Ministry of Health and Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 to rally all relevant stakeholders in Kogi State to ensure that tests are being done.

    He said, “Many patients with symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 have been seen severally in the hospital but efforts to get them tested were frustrated by the state government authorities. 


    “There is palpable fear at the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, as medical doctors and other health workers raise alarm of imminent danger posed by the COVID-19 pandemic to their lives.

    “This was against the backdrop of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control report issued on 17th May 2020 that only a single COVID-19 test has been conducted in Kogi State since the disease was recorded in the country about three months ago.

    “The doctors fear that they are at a high risk of contracting the disease and transmitting same to their families and other unsuspecting patients. It is a known fact that without COVID-19 tests, physicians cannot properly categorize and treat the patients coming into the hospital in accordance with the management protocols.

    “One cannot underestimate the impact of this disease on the lives of the families who have lost loved ones to it. As at today across the country 603 doctors have been exposed, 149 confirmed positive and seven deaths recorded. We in FMC Lokoja do not wish to be joined in these statistics.”

    The NCDC in its May 18 situation report revealed that Kogi and Cross River states have the lowest figures of samples tested since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country in February, 2020.

    According to the report, Kogi submitted only one sample while Cross Rivers submitted seven.

    Late Ravi Zacharias

    Ravi Zacharias, popular Indian-born Canadian-American Christian evangelist known for his role in defending Christianity, has died at 74.

    Until his death in Atlanta, United States on Tuesday, Zacharias had been battling sarcoma. 

    He is survived by his wife, Margie, daughters Sarah and Naomi, son, Nathan, and five grandchildren.

    He was a leading figure among Christian apologists, a branch of Christian theology that defends Christian doctrines against objections, CNN reports. 

    Late Ravi Zacharias


    He won the Gold Medallion Book Award for his work, Can Man Live Without God? and published Christian bestsellers such as Light in the Shadow of Jihad and The Grand Weaver.

    Zacharias founded Zacharias International Ministries in 1984 and launched a global team of nearly 100 Christian scholars and authors, who continue to speak, resource, train and address the questions of millions around the world.

    Michael Ramsden, President of Zacharias International Ministries, in a statement said, “(Ravi) saw the objections and questions of others not as something to be rebuffed, but as a cry of the heart that had to be answered.

    “People weren’t logical problems waiting to be solved; they were people who needed the person of Christ. Those who knew him well will remember him first for his kindness, gentleness, and generosity of spirit. The love and kindness he had come to know in and through Jesus Christ was the same love he wanted to share with all he met.”
