Why some states are playing politics with COVID-19--- Ango AbdullahiSome states have been accused of allegedly playing politics with the coronavirus that is currently ravaging the world.

ROYAL NEWS gathered that the Professor Ango Abdullahi-led Northern Elders Forum on Thursday disclosed that states were playing politics with the numbers of suspects tested for COVID-19 in order to attract more funds from both the Federal Government and foreign donors.

This was contained in a statement signed by Abdullahi and made available to journalists in Kaduna.

The statement read in part, “The forum regrets the appearance of attempts by many state governments to play politics with numbers for what appears to be expectations that more funds from the Federal Government and foreign donors will be allocated to them.
