Enforcement Of Face Masks Begins In Lagos As Second Wave Of Coronavirus Thickens

The Vehicle Inspectorate Services (VIS) in Lagos State, has said it will resume mass sensitisation and enforcement of the use of facemasks and social distancing for drivers and commuters in the state from next week.

The initiative had suffered a setback after the End SARS protest.

Director of the VIS Lagos, Engr. Akin George Fashola, noted that for the country and Lagos State especially to battle the deadly COVID-19 virus effectively, there was need for drivers and commuters to abide by all safety measures.

Speaking with journalists in his office, Engr. Fashola said:

“We can defeat this virus seeing that it is better and less costly to obey all the safety guidelines than to lockdown the country.

“We do not want Lagos State to be lockdown for a second time. Therefore, we will begin our second phase of mass enforcement and sensitisation of drivers especially commercial drivers and commuters to ensure the use of facemasks, observe social distance in the vehicles and other safety rules”.
