Worried by the apparent refusal of  some people of Plateau  State to comply with certain measures put in place to check the spread of  the dreaded COVID-19, the Plateau  state government on Saturday  called for full implementation of the directive .

The Secretary to the Government of the state Prof Danladi Atu, while addressing newsmen in Jos  said tricycles will no longer take more than 1 passenger

Effective Sunday 29th March 2020 ,there will be prohibition  of vechicular movement into Plateau from all border entry routes from 6pm to 7 pm , all people coming into Plateau state should note and take note of this and prepare their trips to avoid unnecessary inconveniences .

Saloon cars will only take 4 passengers including the driver , the government has set up a Covid 19 eradication fund ,which the organised private  sector and  well spirited members of the public can contribute into

" Government takes exception to the non challance and flagrant disregard to the directives by some individuals and groups who have remained recalcitrant , they have also mobilised their followers to disobey the orders of Government , let me make it clear that nobody is above the law and government is taking necessary action action

We appeal to members of the public to cooperate with the Government as we work together to ensure that we protect the lives of our people .

The SGS further refuted claims  that Governor Simon Lalong has  gone into self-isolation as being speculated across the state.

As of now, we have no recorded case of the disease in Plateau State.

"      In order to ensure that we prevent any case from coming into the State, Government has rolled out measures including shutting of markets; ban on festivals; restriction of gatherings to not more than 50 people; Ban on weekly Sunday markets at Ahmadu Bello Way, Bukuru and environs; closure of night clubs and drinking joints etc." " We have appraised the situation about compliance to the directives and you will recall that the Chairman of the Task Force, His Excellency further directed the full enforcement of the orders issued."
