The Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, on Thursday, directed the suspension of the curfew earlier imposed on the State to help curtail the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The suspension was announced by the Secretary to the State government, Prof. Solo Chukwulobelu, on Thursday, in Awka the State capital.

According to him, the State COVID-19 Task Force had reported an increase in the observance of COVID-19 preventive guidelines in the State, hence the decision to suspend the curfew.

“It has been observed that Ndi Anambra and residents have become conscious of the threat to life that COVID-19 poses. There is appreciable compliance to the Covid-19 preventive guidelines issued by the government.

“We are not relenting, as we shall continue with our various interventions, including public enlightenment, engagement with market leaders, churches, hospitals and caregivers, and other stakeholders with the aim of stopping the spread of the virus in our State,” he said.

Chukwulobelu, who stated that the suspension takes effect from 6 am, Saturday, 13th February, 2021, urged residents to be more conscious of the disease and adhere to underlined protocols.
