By Cyber Era Reporter
As motorists across the country gear up towards a hitch-free 2020 Easter celebration, Corps Marshal, of road safety regulator in Nigeria, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi felicitates with the Christian faithfuls, and calls on all motorists to sustain adherence to the respective lockdown orders and comply to the maximum safety and health standards in vehicles amidst the rising case of COVID-19 in the country.
According to an information inked by the Corps Public Education Officer, Corps Commander Bisi Kazeem, seen by Cyber Era, all personnel have been adequately briefed on the imperatives of sustaining the tempo on the ongoing enforcement on overloading of vehicles and mandatory adherence to the social distance directive by all passengers on board, especially as the country continues to battle the deadly virus. However, emphasis will be high on Lagos, Ogun(south west) and the Federal Capital Territory(north central) which have the highest number of victims.
Dr. Oyeyemi while felicitating with the Christian faithfuls ahead of this year’s celebration of the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Christ, beckoned on them to manifest love, care and obedience to established laws so as to portray the lessons of the Holy Week in positive light.
He noted that the Corps would continue to sustain all arrangements on the lockdown as enforcement on all forms of overloading of vehicles and social distance order was still on, even during and beyond the celebration period as the country could not risk unwanted spread of the virus beyond what had been recorded at the moment.
While urging them to stay at home and stay alert, the Corps Marshal further called on Nigerians to cooperate with law enforcement agents and ensure maximum compliance with all directives on restrictions and social distance.
