Senator Shehu Sani took to his Twitter handle this morning to tackle the NCDC and the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 after photos of the APC governorship campaign rally in Edo state which held on Saturday, August 8, surfaced online.
The photos showed the venue was jam-packed with the attendees not obeying the COVID-19 protocols such as physical distancing.
Where is Justice if Naira Marley can be tried for violating COVID-19 protocols while Edo campaign rallies go unchallenged by the law – Shehu Sani
Sani in his tweets opined that the NCDC and PTF have lost the moral right to insist on the closure of worship centres, schools and sports as long as they choose to remain silent over the rally which violated same protocols that convicted Naira Marley.
”Where is Justice if Naira Marley can be arrested,tried and fined for violating the #COVID?19 protocols while the Edo Political Campaigns rallies goes unchallenged by the law,by the @NCDCgov and by the PTF?
