In its efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria, the German government has donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to Nigeria Police Force.
Legit.ng reports that the presentation was made on Thursday, May 7, by the deputy ambassador, German Embassy in Nigeria, Helmut Kulitz, on behalf of the German government.
Kulitz presented the equipment at the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) complex, Area 10, in Abuja, the nation's capital, on May 7.
This was made known by the Nigerian police on its Facebook page, adding that the donation was funded by the German foreign office and implemented by German Development Cooperation (GIZ).
The deputy inspector general of police, Anthony Michael Ogbizi, received the items on behalf of the Nigerian police represented by DCP Umar M. Sanda.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Lagos state House of Assembly called on the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to make recourse to the House over expenses incurred from the donations made towards combating the coronavirus pandemic in the state.
It was reported that the House also charged the governor to make recourse to it before declaring a state of emergency even during a particular situation like currently being experienced on COVID-19 deadly pandemic.
Legit.ng gathered that the resolution followed the observation raised by the state attorney-general and commissioner for justice, Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN) on a recently passed bill tagged, ‘Coronavirus Pandemic Emergency Law, 2020.'
The executive observed among others on the provisions in the law, directing the governor to make a request to the House before declaring a state of emergency and rendering account to the House on the spending of donations to the state government to address the pandemic.
Presiding over the plenary session held on Thursday, May 7, at the chambers, the speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, noted that the institution was not depriving the governor of his power but recourse must be made to the House.
The speaker explained further that it would be better to introduce a co-chairman from the executive arm on incident command, adding that the co-chairman would be ready to face the House committee.
