The federal government has partnered with the Akin Fadeyi Foundation to create public awareness on COVID-19 pandemic.

Akin Fadeyi, the foundation’s executive director, said the awareness would be centered around coronavirus prevention and flattening the curve of the disease.

“In line with one of our programs, we have produced six public communication awareness materials centered on the COVID-19. The aim of this is to educate the general public on the multi-pronged federal ministry of health and W.H.O recommended directives on the prevention of the viral disease,” Fadeyi said in a statement on Wednesday

“These materials would be impactful in driving home the messages even to the grassroots, as people respond positively to audio-visual instructional materials, from our research and experience.

“We highly commend the National Orientation Agency for collaborating with us to achieve this impactful project.”

In his remarks, Garba Abari, NOA director-general, said the agency is delighted to partner with the Akin Fadeyi Foundation and MacArthur Foundation, its funder.

“In these unprecedented times, we have stepped up our responsibility to ensure that Nigerians are adequately informed and educated about the COVID-19 pandemic, and enlighten them to be abreast of prevention methods, so as to curb further spread of the disease,” Abari said.

He encouraged Nigerians to not relent in following directives, saying that the country would survive and win in the fight against the pandemic.

According to the director-general, the partnership is also for the purpose of identifying with development partners in proffering, solutions to society’s challenges in our ever-evolving world.

He also advised Nigerians to adhere to guidelines provided by the WHO and National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for prevention, which includes consistent handwashing with soap under running water for 30 seconds, social distancing, sneezing and coughing into the elbow as well as quickly reporting symptomatic signs to authorities concerned.
