COVID-19: LGA Chairman shuts markets in Amuwo-Odofin over non-compliance to safety protocols

Premised upon the directive of the Chairman of Amuwo-Odofin Local Government, Engr. Dr. Valentine Buraimoh, the committee set-up to ensure compliance of safety protocols in mitigating the further spread of COVID-19 stormed markets within the local government in the early hours of the day to seal them up.

The combined team consisting of all security institutions across the Local Government Area were visibly present to provide necessary support and security backups.

The Chairman of the committee, who is the Vice Chairman of the Local Government, Hon. Idris Abubakar Olusegun, while addressing, reporters in his interview said, “The essence of shutting down the markets is to send forth a clear message that the administration of Engr. Dr. Valentine Buraimoh will do everything in its capacity to stop the surge of the spread of COVID-19 in our Local Government Area”.

“We have trained, sensitized, appealed to them to do the needful by observing all the safety protocols in the interest of our communities. But their recalcitrant attitude necessitated today’s action.”

The Vice Chairman emphatically stated that the markets will remain closed until operators clearly display their intentions to be pragmatic in observing the safety protocols and also commit themselves to a written undertaking in that regard.
