Delta variant: Enforce COVID-19 protocols to curb spread, Oyetola charges FRSC

Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has enjoined the Osun state command of the Federal Road Safety Corps to enforce COVID-19 protocols among commuters in the state to curtail the spread of the pandemic.

Governor Oyetola gave the charge on Thursday in Osogbo at the inauguration of the State Road Safety Advisory Council, a group charged with the responsibility to reduce incessant crashes on the roads.

Oyetola, who was represented by his Deputy Governor, Benedict Alabi, at the event, explained that road transportation system remains one of the potent sources of contracting the virus.

He further said curbing the spread of the menace would hugely depend on the observance of COVID-19 protocols among passengers and road users alike.

He said, “I would therefore like to take this opportunity to implore the Road Safety Corps to enforce COvID-19 protocols, especially at this time when the deadly Delta variant has assumed a more virulent and fatal dimension. This is the time to put life above pecuniary considerations.”

The 10- man Advisory Council has the State Deputy Governor, Benedict Alabi, as its Chairman, the State Commissioners for Works/Transport, Health, Justice, Education, Finance and Environment.

Others are the representatives of the State planning commission and the Nigeria Society of Engineers, while the State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, will serve as Secretary to the Council.
