… Seeks Cooperation of Market Leaders
The Corp Marshal, Lagos Environmental Sanitation Corps (LAGESC), CP Gbemisola Akinpelu (Rtd) has declared the readiness of the Agency to ensure compliance with the directives of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the Corps Marshal, the Agency is part of the essential service providers and enforcement team of the Lagos State Government and has, thus, directed all operatives to remain at their duty posts to enforce compliance.
Akinpelu implored all operators of none food and non-medical stores and markets to close down their outlets as directed by the State Government from the 26th of March 2020, warning that the Agency, along with other enforcement and security personnel, will not tolerate violation of the directive.
She further admonished the market leaders to also scale up advocacy on environmental and personal hygiene among members and other market users while undertaking regular handwashing with soap and water, as well as regular use of hand sanitisers and nose masks.
She gave an assurance that LAGESC officers will continue regular monitoring and enforcement of social distancing, particularly the prevention of more than 25 people at any gathering within their communities.
