The party called on all her members in Nigeria and across the world, to remain cautious and observe all the precautionary measures outlined by the World Health Organization (WHO), National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), and other relevant health organizations.

The party said the Buhari led goverment should make it a matter of importance that, Electricity distribution to all homes across the country be increased, because this will afford citizens to have access to authentic news, which will further help in the awareness against the diseases and reduce the heightened tension and fear being experienced by some Nigerians.
The party urges the Federal government led by President Buhari and State governments to set up more specialized hospitals, test and isolation centers, across the country to enable victims have access to quick treatments, since the few existing ones seems to becoming overstretched, he concluded.
