Delta free of Lassa Fever, 55 persons under watch recovering

Delta State Com­missioner for Information, Mr Patrick Ukah, has said that the state has been declared free of Lassa Fever. Speaking to journalists at a me­dia parley yesterday, Ukah stated that the Ministry of Health has given the state a clean bill of health after 55 quarantined cases were cleared.
He also said that a new logo and anthem has been unveiled for the state, saying, “This is a seal, or an emblem, and a logo of the Delta State Government. What we had was the military seal and we are not a militarised state. All the states are beginning to make their own.”
The commissioner, while debunking ru­mours that the state spent billions to host the silver jubilee, re­vealed that in partner­ing the private sector, the state realised over N165 million and signed five Memoran­da of Understanding (MoU) to develop the state.
Also commenting on why the state has been hard pressed from hav­ing palliatives to cush­ion the effect of the re­cession, Ukah said the government has paid all salaries and even signed the September 2016 salaries.
