PTF directs security agencies to ensure strict compliance to advisories
Written by admin on May 9, 2020
The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has directed security agencies to adopt strict enforcement to ensure that people comply with the rules, following the gross violation of guidelines and the advisories issued by the Federal Government on the gradual reopening of the economy.
Chairman of the task force and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, disclosed this yesterday in Abuja.
He further stated that the PTF has intensified monitoring of the level of compliance with the advisories and guidelines already issued and the outcome of the surveillance still points to the fact that violations were still rampant and portends a very dangerous trend.
Security agencies have also been urged to respect the fundamental rights of citizens during enforcement, while all exempted persons, including journalists and medical personnel, must always carry a verifiable and authentic means of identification.
