COVID-19: Oyeyemi Tasks FRSC Operatives on Partial Easing of lockdown

…Warns Against Compromise on Inter-State Travel Directives

The Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi has charged operatives of the Corps to eschew any form of compromise and carryout with all sense of responsibility and vigour the Presidential directives on partial easing of lockdown effective.

The Corps Marshal gave the charge to the operatives in order to keep them on high alert regarding the imperatives of implementing to satisfaction the Presidential directives with particular emphasis  on the  restriction on interstate travels, physical distancing amongst vehicle occupants ,  compulsory use of protective face masks and provision  of temperature  check  devices , sanitizers and hand washing  points in motor  parks and  terminals

Oyeyemi ordered Commanding Officers to ensure that only vehicles conveying goods such as agro and petroleum products, medical supplies, relief and construction materials as well as essential services as directed by Mr President are allowed to travel across states.

He warned that on no account should taxis conveying more than 3 passengers (driver and 2 persons) be allowed passage on any route.

In the same vein, Buses must comply with the directives of conveying passengers without exceeding 50% of mandatory  capacity (maximum of only 2 passengers on a row), while tricycles should carry only two passengers at a time, in line with the recommendations of Presidential Task Force on physical distancing amongst commuters.

This is as transport owners have been adequately communicated on maintaining environmental hygiene and provide temperature checks and hand watching/sanitising points at the parks/terminal. As such, Commanding Officers should, with immediate effect engage the Transport Unions on the need to adhere to the prescribed number of passengers they are to carry.
