Easter: FRSC calls for sustained adherence to lockdown order
Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, has called on motorists to sustain adherence to the lockdown orders, the maximum safety and health standards in vehicles amid the rising case of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country.
The Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, quoted Oyeyemi in a statement yesterday in Abuja, to have stated this in his Easter message to Christians.
According to Oyeyemi, emphasis will be high on Lagos, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) where presidential lockdown was imposed.
He disclosed that all personnel had been adequately briefed to sustain the tempo on the ongoing enforcement on overloading of vehicles, and mandatory adherence to the social distance directive by all passengers, especially as the country continues to battle the deadly virus.
The corps marshal beckoned Christians to manifest love, care and obedience to established laws, to portray the lessons of the Holy Week in positive light.
He noted that FRSC would continue to sustain all arrangement on the lockdown, as enforcement on all forms of overloading and social distance order was still on, even during and beyond the Easter period, as the country could not risk further spread of the virus.
While urging them to stay at home and on alert, the corps marshal called on Nigerians to cooperate with law enforcement agents and ensure maximum compliance with all directives on restrictions.
