The Director of Public Health Plateau State SMOH and the Incident
Manager for Covid 19 State EOC Mr Gonen Lakda, has been removed and
redeployed as a fallout for the leaked result of the index Covid 19 case
in the State
The Director of public health, ministry of health Plateau State
recently Frankly opened up that they are overwhelmed at the ministry and
are in need of more hands to help them when NCDC held a meeting with
them in Jos.
The Director has been deployed to a yet to be identified ministry by a circular within the health Ministry.
All efforts to get the permanent secretary and Commissioner of health
to respond on the redeployment of the Director proved abortive as at
the time of this report.
Few days ago the Commissioner of Health responded to a journalist on
inquiry of the first index case in Plateau “it is none of your business”
People have been asking questions on the first index case as it
relates to contact tracing and other concerns but the channel of
communication has been poor from the ministry.
A new replacement is yet to be made as concerned citizens asks more
questions to the situation room reporting cases with less answers and
