Chairman Plateau State Covid-19 and other Infectious Diseases Research team, Prof. Noel Wannang has indicated the readiness of his committee to present an interim proposal for government’s perusal this Monday, as directed by the State Governor, Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with our correspondents in his office in Jos, he categorically appreciated the governor for giving them the opportunity to serve humanity noting that the committee with God’s help will not disappoint the citizens of the state.

He assured the government and citizens that they would put in their best in the research work to also justify the confidence reposed in them.

According to Prof. Wannang, in the aftermath of the time frame given to the committee to submit their proposal, they have all been working tirelessly to make sure that their proposal is submitted Monday next week.

He further expressed the readiness of the committee to ensuring a result oriented research finding which would be in the collective interest of humanity.

Prof Wannang noted that with the intellectual capacity of the members of the committee including their international exposure in scientific research, venturing into such field of endeavour would be quite interesting with positive impact.

He appealed to the people of Plateau State to be patient and prayerful as they await the outcome of the committee’s research report.
