Motor Parks in Nigeria are veritable contact points where travellers from within and outside the country do have regular contacts

It is the for this reason that the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) decided to join the federal government to provide facilities that would prevent the spread of the disease

The Chairman of the Lagos State Chapter of NURTW, Chief Musiliu Akinsanmi popularly known as MC Oluomo disclosed to newsmen in Lagos that the union had decided to provide sanitizers to all passengers travelling through all motor parks across the State in order to prevent any possible spread

Mc-Oluomo made this known on Thursday during a visit by the state Ministry of Health and Strategy team to his office in Oko Oba area of the state.

He said, “In a bid to stop the ravaging Coronavirus, the union is contributing its quota by making hand sanitizers available at our parks.

“As we are aware, our members interact with different kinds of people at motor parks and this makes them vulnerable to infectious disease.
