The Rivers State Governor, Ezenwo Nyesom Wike has announced that Rivers has begun the process of decontaminating markets and other public places in preparedness for resumption of economic activities in the state.
Governor Wike this evening in a series of tweets he put out on his Twitter handle emphasized that lives of Rivers people and the people doing business in it are paramount.
He revealed that part of the reason why the markets are still shut is because they are still not decontaminated. He also revealed that schools, motor parks and churches will also be decontaminated.
Wike further maintained that when the decontamination is done, traders will undertake to abide by the Covid-19 protocols.
“This issue of COVID- 19 is real and 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,” Wike said.
