The Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC), has said that the 14-days lockdown embarked upon to combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the state is yielding positive result, as compliance by the people is encouraging.
Mr Clement Oladele, FRSC Sector Commander in Ogun, disclosed this in an interview with Nigeria News Agency in Abeokuta on Wednesday.
Oladele noted that it was important for the people to obey government directives, saying it remained the best way to avoid the spread of the virus.
He said that the only concern might be when the lockdown enters into the 10th or 12th day, saying people may start feeling restless and tired of staying at home.
Oladele, however, pleaded with the people not to relent in compliance as doing otherwise could wipe away all the earlier sacrifices of staying at home since the commencement of the lockdown order.
“Being disciplined throughout this period will make everybody comply willingly, without enforcement by the security agencies, this is key to making us defeat the pandemic and return to living our normal lives.
“The citizens should be extra vigilant and report those few lawless members of our community that may attempt to flout the presidential directive on COVID – 19 restriction order.
“The lockdown order , though may be denying us our freedom , but it is a necessary sacrifice which is similar to what a pregnant woman in labour endures during childbirth but to later get relieved after successful birth of the child,” he said.
Oladele commended all FRSC Officers and Marshals working alongside other security agencies, toiling day and night to enforce the presidential directive.
