As the fear of Coronavirus spreads across Nigeria with more cases recorded in Lagos, and the FCT, two governors stand out in their preparedness to combat an outbreak of the virus.
They are Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo State who has already set up a COVID-19 Task Force and Babajide Sanwoolu of Lagos who has the most recorded cases so far.
Makinde continues to update his people on activities of the Task Force via his Twitter handle, @seyiamakinde and the state seems truly ready in case of an outbreak.
Some other organisations have paced up with the governor’s effort to check the spread of the #Coronavirus
One of such organisations is the state transport company, Pacesetters.
The Executive Chairman of the Pacesetters Transport company, Mr Dare Adeleke assures users of the service of the company’s preparedness in a statement issued in Ibadan, Oyo State:
“As a Responsible Transportation Company, with ridership of hundreds of passengers daily within and outside Oyo State, we have taken a cue from resolve of our State Governor, His Excellency Engr. Seyi Makinde as we have taken the bull by the horn, by providing facilities and taken measures to protect our staff and numerous passengers from this world pandemic”, Adeleke said.
He reiterated the organisations readiness by explaining some of the measures already in place: “Our Buses will be free from the deadly virus as we have gone ahead to fumigate them. Am exercise we shall continue for as long as the fear lasts.
We also equipped our operatives with anti – Coronavirus safety wears and alcohol based hand sanitisers”.
Adeleke prayed asked for God’s intervention: “May God continue to protect the good people of Oyo State and Nigeria from the ravaging virus!” he said.
