The Vehicle Inspectorate Services (VIS) in Lagos State, disclosed that it will resume mass sensitisation and enforcement of the use of facemasks and social distancing for drivers and commuters in the state from next week.

The initiative was said to have suffered a setback after the End SARS protest.

Engr. Akin George Fashola, Director of the VIS Lagos said that for the country and Lagos State especially to battle the deadly COVID-19 virus effectively, there was need for drivers and commuters to abide by all safety measures.

While Speaking with journalists in his office, Engr. Fashola said: “We can defeat this virus seeing that it is better and less costly to obey all the safety guidelines than to lockdown the country.

We do not want Lagos State to be lockdown for a second time. Therefore, we will begin our second phase of mass enforcement and sensitisation of drivers especially commercial drivers and commuters to ensure the use of facemasks, observe social distance in the vehicles and other safety rules”.
