From the CEO’s Desk on Coronavirus

Good morning all,

I believe we are all safe and observing all necessary instruction.

This is the time to always check on love ones far and near.

At this period let us be careful what we post or share as many are just out there to be mischievous all in the name of playing pranks.

Ensure that you fact check all the post you want to share as this is period that we need sanity on our social media platforms.

The government should also ensure that they use all platforms to disseminate appropriate updates and not keep the citizens in the dark as this may cause more panic and more spread of fake news.

I still strongly believe that the ministry of humanitarian affairs and disaster management, NOA, States Ministry of Information and all media outfits should be fully engaged at this time to support the citizens so that they stay at home.

The next few days are very critical in the fight against COVID 19, please watch out for the wellbeing of children around you.

I hope religious bodies will also start thinking on how to support families and communities with foodstuff and basic essentials.

Together, we will overcome this pandemic and hopefully come out of it a better nation.

God bless you all.

YOUNG AND TEENAGE FEMALES: COMBATING SUICIDE WITH ACTIVE HOPE
