Intensifying the joint efforts to curb the effective of COVID-19 in the country, the Catholic Bishop Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) has willingly donated all its 425 health facilities across the country as isolation centres.
According to Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), the church has given permissions for the state governments can now take advantage of the facilities.
“As part of efforts to support the states in the establishment of the isolation and treatment centres, I wish to remind our governors that the Catholic Bishops Conference has volunteered all the 425 hospitals and clinics nationwide for adaptation and use as isolation centres.
Governors are encouraged to please approach Catholic Bishops in their states to access these facilities.
As a further cost-effective measure, I also wish to remind subnational authorities that the Nigeria Institute of Architects has pledged the pro bono services of their members to modify, design and supervise all COVID-19 related projects nationwide. Again, we urge that this offer be taken up speedily,” he revealed.
