The Executive Chairman of Eket LGC and Chairman, Eket Senatorial District COVID 19 Church Monitoring Team, Hon. Frank Archibong has charged Churches in Eket Senatorial District to lead by example as the fight against COVID 19 in the State continues.
The Council Boss gave the charge today during the routine visit to churches across the senatorial district as part of monitoring efforts to ensure compliance of churches with the CAN COVID 19 guidelines and regulations.
