A joint team of Security agencies have embarked on enforcement of compliance with directives on precautionary measures outlined by Oyo State Government to combat Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease in the State.
The inter-agency team comprises of Oyo State Road Transport Management Authority, Nigeria Police Force, Federal Road Safety Corps, among others.
This, the Executive Chairman, OYRTMA, Dr. Akin Fagbemi said this would promote interagency collaborations in the State and curtail the spread of the deadly Coronavirus disease.
He added that, “this is in line with the directives of Governor Seyi Makinde who had earlier outlined measures aimed at dealing with Coronavirus in the State.”
The team ensured strict monitoring of compliance at public parks, garages and private transportation companies across Oyo State, to prevention guidelines issued by Governor Makinde to curtail the rapid spread of the disease.
It would be recalled that part of the preventive measures rolled out by the state government is social distancing, suspension of religious activities, disbandment of gathering with more than 30 people among others.
The State has also directed garages and commercial operators to adhere strictly to guidelines reeled out for them during these trying times, while it warned that anyone caught flouting the recommendations and guidelines would be arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law.
The team commended residents and operators for their understanding and cooperation towards eradicating the novel Coronavirus disease.
