The Ogun Command of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Sunday commended motorists over the high level of compliance with the lockdown in the state to contain the coronavirus.
The State FRSC Sector Commander, Mr Clement Oladele, gave the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ota, Ogun.
NAN reports that the directive on total lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic started on Friday at 11.00 pm.
“FRSC wants to commend motorists for complying with the directive on lockdown to contain the current COVID-19 pandemic.
”I am also applauding FRSC marshals working daily to enforce and implement the directive with other security agencies.
”I believe that other people yet to comply with the directive will do so with sensitisation and education,” he said.
Oladele said that FRSC personnel were working in harmony with other security agencies.
“We have deployed additional 300 officials apart from the 500 earlier deployed in case the situation degenerates.
”Fifty additional personnel working in various FRSC licencing offices across the state have also been drawn to join the enforcement exercise,” he said.
The sector Commander urged the motoring public to continue to extend the cooperation to FRSC and other security agencies.
Oladele also urged residents to continue to stay at home as moving around could endanger the lives of others who had obeyed directives. (NAN)
