A unionist, Alhaji Mohammed Musa, on Saturday told members of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) to comply with government’s directives on the current lockdown to stay out of trouble
He said that members of the association had been briefed on the need to obey all directives put in place by both states and the Federal Government on the lockdown, including curfew and inter-state travels.
On April 27, the Federal Government announced a nationwide ban on interstate travels that took effect from May 4 and imposed a curfew from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. nationwide, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“We are law-abiding citizens, there is nothing we can drag with the government than to obey.
“The lockdown is not forever. We pray that very soon things will come back to normal. We appeal to our members to obey and endure the hard times.”
Musa said that the Eid-el-Fitri celebration was usually a peak season for transportation business but that COVID-19 had affected the business adversely.
