ABUJA: National President of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria RTEAN, Comrade Eriyo Osakpamwan has warned members of the association against violating Covid-19 safety protocols in the wake of the federal government’s decision to lift the ban on interstate movement.

Eriyo advised RTEAN members across the country to obey all safety precautions as put in place by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control NCDC.

“We sincerely thank President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chairman of PTF and Secretary to Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, in approving the lifting of interstate movement ban. Our members have really suffered during this period. We play a crucial role in the road transport sub-sector, and so the Federal Government needs to also provide some palliatives for our members”.
