Former , Olusegun Obasanjo says policy implementation was a major problem hindering ’s growth and development.

Obasanjo said this in Ibadan on Saturday at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA).

He said: “Our problem in this country has always been that of implementation. The 25-year Oyo State Government Agriculture Policy Framework presented is a good thing.

“We have formulated several policies in the past that suffered implementation. I hope your successor will implement it”.

Obasanjo added that technology, and human resources were challenges facing agricultural development.

He added, “If you go into agriculture you may not be rich like Dangote, but you will be satisfied and comfortable.

“You will be comfortable because you are close to nature. Every individual is a stakeholder in the agriculture value-chain.

”If you are not a farmer, then you must be a consumer. If you are not a farmer, you can encourage a farmer”.

The Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), on Thursday, announced a new case management guideline for the treatment and discharge of COVID-19 pandemic patients.

Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, Director-General of NCDC, made this known at the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 (PTF) media briefing in Abuja.

Ihekweazu said that the third version of the guidelines was released following the emergence of new science about the duration of infectivity of individual patients.

The director-general said that the guidelines were for symptomatic and asymptomatic patients.

According to him, symptomatic patients will now be discharged at least ten days after symptom onset and at least three days without symptoms.

“For asymptomatic patients, they can be discharged 14 days after the first PCR positive test.

“We no longer have to wait for a negative test to discharge, with the confidence that you can go home, and you are no longer infectious or putting family or friends at risk.

“If your symptoms last longer, we will wait while managing it,” Ihekweazu said.

Ihekweazu said that physicians were hesitant about the new guidelines, assuring them that the new guidelines were effective.

The NCDC chief said the centre had also removed the use of antivirals and Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine from its treatment guidelines.
