The Director of VIS, Lagos Chapter, Engr Akin George Fashola disclosed in his office while speaking with journalists recently, he said to battle the deadly COVID-19 virus effectively, there’s need for drivers and commuters to abide by all safety measures in the country.

According to him, “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.

“We will ensure the use of facemasks, observe social distance in the vehicles and other safety rules.We can defeat this virus seeing that it is better and less costly to obey all the safety guidelines than to lockdown the country”, he said.
