Kogi State Disagrees With NCDC, Says Kogi Is COVID-19 Free.

The government of Kogi has maintained that the state is free of COVID-19, accusing the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) of having an agenda to spread the disease across the country.

It is more alarming that the Buhari government, in this fiscal year, cannot muster the capacity to harness the huge resources available in our country to generate even half of the sum of its own budget, but has been going cap in hands to shop for foreign loans. The PDP expressed fears that with this situation, the APC administration is practically dri
