The Central Bank of Nigeria CBN is planning to convert it’s clinic inside Garki 2 estate into a Covid-19 treatment centre. Jungle Journalist Media Ltd has learnt.
According to a resident who spoke with our Abuja Correspondent, the clinic doctor and CBN management staff had met officials of the estate association to brief them of the proposed plan but the residents wee against the idea.
Leaders of the association wondered why the clinic inside an estate where more than 200 residents live should be converted into a treatment centre. They said the risks are overwhelming.
“If executed, the estate will have only one entrance instead of the regular two as expected by law. The association intend to approach the court should CBN insist on converting the estate into covid treatment centre”, the resident said while speaking with Jungle Journalist Media Ltd on the telephone.
Below are copies of petition the community has already written to the Governor of the Central Bank, the Coordinator of National Centre for Disease Control, and the Managing Director, Development Control, Abuja.
