Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has vowed to prosecute banks, shopping malls, restaurants, shops and business that fail to enforce the wearing of facemasks and social distancing.
In a series of post on his Twitter page, Governor Wike disclosed that all public and private schools, including places of worship and motor parks, will be decontaminated to curb the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
He wrote: “All public and private schools will be decontaminated before schools open. Churches and motor parks will also be decontaminated,” Wike tweeted.
“This issue of COVID- 19 is real, and the government will not hesitate to seal up and prosecute owners of banks, shopping malls, restaurants, shops, business places or offices that fail to enforce social distancing and the wearing of face masks in their premises.
“The Decontamination Team does not compromise standards but put in your best to ensure that the entire state is decontaminated.”
