The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has called on motorists across Nigeria to maintain adherence to lockdown order towards the 2020 Easter celebration.
The celebration is expected to be done amidst Coronavirus lockdown.
While felicitating with the Christian faithful, Bisi Kazeem, FRSC spokesperson asked motorists to adhere to the maximum safety and health standards in vehicles amidst the rising case of COVID-19 in the country.
“All the 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 and the Federal Capital Territory where presidential lockdown was imposed.
“The Corps Marshal, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi while felicitating with the Christian faithful 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 a positive light.”
He noted that the Corps will continue to sustain all arrangement on the lockdown as enforcement on all forms of overloading of vehicles and social distance order is still on, even during and beyond the celebration period as the country cannot risk the unwanted spread of the virus beyond what has 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”, Bisi Kazeem wrote.
