Speaker of the Lagos House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa has said the Nigerian government has to scale-up its management and preventive measures amid the recent Coronavirus outbreak.
After Nigeria’s first case of the Coronavirus epidemic, Obasa called for the inspection of seaports across Nigeria as soon as possible.
He, however, begged Lagosians to not panic, because the state government will always be proactive when it comes their safety.
He added that FG is not relaxed on the issue and he expects the government to keep doing everything possible to address our current reality.
His words, “Even though it is the most populous city in the country, Lagos state has always anticipated and taken steps ahead of events by equipping its medical facilities and making sure disease control centres are up-to-date with issues related to their field. This is why residents of the state should remain calm at this time.
“I can assure you that the executive arm of government is not relaxed and will continue with its concerted efforts to nip this concern in the bud.
“Be assured also that the legislative arm of the state government will do all within its powers to help the executive curtail the ailment since, as fortune would have it, we only have one recorded case.”
“We are told to always wash our hands, stay a distance from those who are sneezing and coughing as well as other such simple instructions.”
