Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has advised residents of the state to go out and do their last minute shopping before the restriction order begins today Monday March 30th.
President Buhari ordered the restriction of movement in Lagos, Ogun and Abuja as Nigeria continues to battle the Coronavirus pandemic.
The governor in a statement released, said the restriction order will help the state continue its fight against the virus.
The restriction, needless to say, will enhance our chances of defeating Coronavirus for the following reasons:
• Our medical workers will have room to move faster to cases that they need to handle;
• The disease will be contained faster as those infected will be easily identified and isolated as the treatment for the disease demands; and
• Social distancing will be enhanced and more people will be prevented from contracting the disease.
I would like to address the fears of those who have expressed some security concerns about your places of work and shops during this restriction. I have directed the police and other security agents to ensure that there are no security breaches.
They will ensure that criminals do not take advantage of this important measure.
The private sector, our market leaders and traders are advised to use the window of opportunity that we have before 11pm to move out inflammable materials, such as petrol, kerosene and others, from their offices and shops, which they are free to open before the restriction begins.
They are also advised to switch off all electrical and electronic appliances. These measures are to stave off fire incidents during the 14-day restriction.
Members of the public are advised to also use this window to make last-minute shopping in readiness for the restriction” the governor said in his statememt
