The National President of Boi Progressive Association, Amos G. John has urged members to abide by travelling restrictions put in place by the Bauchi State government in the face of the COVID 19 pandemic ravaging the state.

A statement signed by the Information Officer of Bogoro Local Government Area James Gomma quoted the president of the association saying this when he instituted a three man advocacy committee on Corona virus in Boi, Bogoro Local Government Area of Bauchi State.


John revealed that it was unlawful for anyone to travel out to his or her state of residence in view of the law on ground and the danger associated with the pandemic in the country.


He said, the association has noted with great  dismay that despite the lockdown order; people from pandemic prone areas still travel to their state of origin without considering the welfare of their love ones.


The President urged all those who have the idea of coming home to shelve their plans in the interests of public health.


Mr. John said the Boi Progressive Association is ready to complement Government’s  effort to enforcing physical distancing, hand washing and use of face masks in public spaces.


The National president assured that  BPA will help identify anyone that shows the signs and symptoms of COVID19 in the area or break down the movement restrictions order.


Mr. John also charged all BPA members to adhere to other added protective measures to reduce the risk of COVID19 spread.


He however thank  the chairman Caretaker committee Bogoro LGA Hon Iliya Habila and Health workers for their resilience to isolate the infected person.


Mr. John then appealed to members of the public to note that  the Boi Tuesday market has been  suspended while church activities are to be  observed at family level.


He called for prayers for  Mr. Luka Zabe and family that God will grant him speedy recovery from COVID19.
