Yesterday, during the 29th presidential task force for Covid-19 briefing, the chairman of the taskforce who is also the Secretary to the Governemnt of the federation; Boss Mustapha made it publicly known that he Catholic Bishop Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) has now offered all its 425 health facilities across the country as isolation centres for COVID-19.



The SGF now beseech all the state governments in the country to now take advantage of the facilities.

It will be recalled that the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has been saying that no state in the country has enough bed spaces for COVID-19 patients, but with the recent donations, Mustapha who chairs the presidential task force on COVID-19, said these would add in the committee’s support for the state governments.

“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,” he said.

“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.”

The SGF also said the Thisday Dome treatment and isolation facility will be commissioned on Tuesday.

Nduka Obaigbena, publisher of THISDAY newspaper, had donated the facility to support the fight against COVID-19 in Abuja.

“It will add a total of 270 beds to our isolation capacity in Abuja. This is a private sector-driven initiative and we commend the efforts of this Thisday, NNPC, Sahara Energy Group, CCECC and all the partners involved in this enterprise,” Mustapha said.
