Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has announced the relaxation of the curfew imposed on the state between 7pm and 7am because of the ravaging Corona pandemic.

Umahi who announced this in Abakaliki during a  live statewide broadcast on the update of preventive measures taken against the spread of coronavirus also lifted the ban on commercial motorcycle operation within the capital city.

The Governor noted the lifting of the ban on Okada operation and the relaxation of the curfew followed the level of cooperation by residents.

He said the ban still continues within 300 meters radius away from the different boundaries in the state.

He maintained the ban on religious activities and shutdown of drinking joints in that state remains.

The governor who urged the residents to still exercise little patience with the State Government, said that his administration will work to endure that the state does not record another case.

He noted that the first index case patient, who is at the Isolation center at the Unity Square Abakaliki is recieving the needed attention.


Meanwhile, the governor has bowed to preaure and appologised to Journalists that he recently arrested and bannned for Life from entering the Ebonyi State Government House and government facilities in the State.
Umahi who  pleaded with journalists to put behind the recent impasse involving Vanguard’s correspondent, Mr Peter Okutu and his SUN counterpart, Mr Chijioke Agwu
.

 said the development was not intentional.


“I have directed that the unfortunate incident with the press was not intentional but I’m asking everybody to disregard what has happened because we are all partners in progress and let us work together. But I will advise that you please cross-check information.

“There are certain write-ups that people are not happy about and that is why I said please let everybody down tools in love and work together.

“I specifically asked that the SUN and Vanguard reporters be invited, as a father when you beat a child with one hand, you bring the child back with another hand.

“I believe strongly that if anybody wants to intentionally bring you down he can’t pull you down standing, he will certainly go down with you. And you may even rise above of him. But the single way to be happy in life is to be happy with success.

“I want to invite the press for partnership and also ask them to also please helps build the state. Nobody said you should do preferential reporting, nobody said you should not report the truth because our state is peculiar. Everybody has forgotten what happened let’s work together.
