Abuja – Most commercial drivers across the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), had compiled with the directive on spacing of passengers to curb the spread of COVID- 19.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), correspondent, who monitored the situation on Sunday at Gwarimp, observed that most commercial drivers had complied with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) directives.
FRSC has directed drivers to space passengers to help curb the spread of coronavirus in FCT.
Mr Wale Ojo, a commercial driver, said the spacing was necessary, and advised other drivers to follow the directive in their own interest.
“I would have stopped working because I am scared of the virus, but my family depend on me for their daily feeding,” he said.
NAN reports that most passengers were happy on the development, and urged FRSC to monitor motorists to ensure compliance.
NAN also reports that FRSC had earlier urged public transport operators to comply with the directive of Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), to put measures in place to contain the spread of the virus.
