Governor Nyesom Wike has come out to blast Nigeria Medical Association, Rivers chapter.

This is coming after the association revealed that 22 doctors and 60 other health workers in the state have tested positive among Covid-19 infections in Rivers.

According to Wike, the numbers given are completely incorrect and the number of cases is only increasing because of the increased number of tests.

He added that the fact that NMA said nothing about the sabotage of the state’s borders means the association has joined the coronavirus politics.

His words, “As key stakeholders who are supposed to partner the State Government in fighting the pandemic, I am alarmed that NMA has become the people creating panic. I am more surprised that the Branch chairman who made the claim is not only a civil servant, but she heads an Isolation Center in the state.

“I’ve given everything required for the fight the pandemic, within available resources in Rivers. She is talking about the increase in health hazard allowances for medical workers. Does it mean they will not be infected with the increment? COVID-19 respects no one.

“We just lost a SAN, a very close friend. Nobody expected that to happen. The number she (Rivers NMA Chairman) gave is totally not correct. And she talked about increasing infections, but we all know that when you are doing more testing numbers are bound to increase.

“Everybody knows what we are suffering on sabotage of our borders. NMA did not say how the sabotage is thwarting our efforts. The NMA chairman has joined politics.

“There’s is more to it than meets the eye over her statements. I welcome her to the political arena. I hope she will be able to stand, carrying propaganda, stories that Re not correct.”
