Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has commended State Governors for the way they have handled COVID-19 in their states.

Nigeria currently has 7267 cases of COVID-19 with 221 deaths recorded since the first case in February.

Speaking on Friday at a webinar organised by the Kofi Annan Foundation, Jonathan praised the governors who have been stirring their economy towards a post-COVID-19 era.

He said, “In Nigeria, I have seen one positive thing about the management of the COVID-19.

“We’ve seen the role played by the State governments, and some of the State governments are even looking at post-COVID-19 era and the economy of their people.”

“I have seen now what could be described as the devolution of powers with the governors".
