Our Reporter


SPECIAL Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Central Business Districts, Olugbenga Olanrewaju has stated that officials of the Agency will commence the enforcement of the Lagos State Government’s directive on the closure of some markets and stores that do not sell essential items like food, water, pharmaceutical products and medical equipment.

Olanrewaju expressed satisfaction with the level of compliance and implored all business premises, traders and customers not affected by the directive to maintain strict hygiene and practice social distancing while conducting their businesses within the CBD.

“No business premises and shops should have more than 25 customers at a time and provision must be made for hand-washing as well as alcohol-based sanitisers. Business owners, customers as well as visitors must also observe social distancing of not less than two metres from each other at all times,” Olanrewaju said.

The Special Adviser also warned that any business owner who refuses to comply with the government’s directive on social gatherings will be shut down and penalised, imploring open markets and store owners not to open for business but stay home as instructed.

The fumigation machines, which are in their hundreds, would be deployed to every part of the metropolis for sterilisation of public surfaces.
