As Buhari confirms the COVID 19 status of Geoffrey Onyeama, the Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs. This could imply danger for other ministers and high profile government official of the APC. Especially those from the Eastern states.
What could have been the most successful meeting convened by APC on July 11, 2020 leaves everyone in question. About the health stability of Igbo leaders of APC extraction as one of the senior and high profile minister Geoffrey K. J. Onyeama, who was in attendance, test positive for COVID 19, six days after the meeting.
The fundamental question becomes where, how, from whom did Geoffrey Onyeama contract the virus from.
On the other hand, Who amongst those dignitaries that attended the meeting is most vulnerable to COVID 19? Who was close in contact to Geoffrey Onyenma amongst the ministers, the Governor of IMO State, and the prominent Igbo leaders?
These prominent Igbo leaders met in Government House, Owerri to deliberate the future of APC and the South East Agenda. Although, the meeting was successful with a robust statement that the Southeast is not marginalised. The COVID 19 result of Onyeama raises concern about those dignitaries in attendance.
The high power delegation was pioneered by former President of the Senate, Chief Ken Nnamani, and included Minister of Science and Technology Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, Minister of Labour and Productivity Dr Chris Ngige, Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr Geoffrey Onyema, Minister of State, Mines and Steel Development, Dr Uche Ogah, Minister of State, Education, Dr Emeka Nwajiuba, and Sir Frank Ibezim, Deputy Governor of IMO State, Chief of Staff, just to mention but a few.
The closed-door meeting ended with a vote of confidence on the Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, who is the only APC governor in the South-East. Nnamani said "they did not only come to wish Governor Uzodinma well but to tell him they are impressed with what they have seen on the ground, believing strongly that there is a lot of hope in the person Hope as the Governor of Imo State."
From report, the minister (Geoffrey K. J. Onyeama) has proceeded to self isolation. In line, with COVID 19 protocols. But, the most troubling question becomes did he contract the virus from Owerri Government House? Was he asymptotic to COVID 19? How many of the prominent Igbo politicians could have being exposed?
It is therefore important that these Igbo leaders proceed on self isolation for 2 weeks according to NCDC protocol guidelines. To curtail the spread of COVID 19 across the Eastern state. To prevent colossal health damage due to COVID 19.
