Director-General of NCDC Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, who spoke when he led officials of the centre to the Government House, Port Harcourt, said Rivers was important in the fight against the virus.

Addressing Wike, he said, “This is a working visit. I want to thank you for your firm, strong, committed and personally-led response to COVID-19 in Rivers State.

“Rivers is one of the most important gateways into the country. One of the most important economies in the country. So, Rivers is important, not only to you but to the country.

“We thank you very much for your leadership and we need your leadership to continue for us to continue doing our work nationally.”

Ihekweazu said his team was in Rivers to engage with the state’s health team to consolidate on the success recorded in the fight against coronavirus.

He said he came with the officer in charge of the World Health Organisation (WHO) to support the state’s team, which he described as excellent.
