COVID-19 : Lagos Speaker Obasa Calls For Intensified Public Enlightenment

Posted on March 19, 2020

The speaker of Lagos House of Assembly, Rt. Hon.(Dr.) Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa, has called on Governor Babajide Sanwo – Olu and the Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi to intensify efforts in disseminating information about the coronavirus to people of Lagos State.

The Speaker wants such information to be very regular and in different Nigerian languages that residents of the state can easily understand.

Obasa made this statement during the plenary session of the assembly on Thursday, March 19, 2020.

“The way things are now we don’t know the number of people that have been infected going by the number of people that have tested positive to the virus,” he said.

He said if people had listened and followed the precautions earlier given by the government the number of infected person would not have risen up to what it is now.

He also said it is now imperative for the government to continue to churn out more information on preventive measures to be taken by the people in order to stem the spread of the virus.

He applauded the government on its decision to reduce the number of people in places of worship.

He also advised that the meetings with market women and NURTW members should be regular for further enlightenment.
