The Lagos State Government on Sunday said it has deployed 48 trained volunteers as safety marshals to jetties across the state.
The Director-General of the Lagos State Safety Commission, Mr. Lanre Mojola, in a statement said while the Office of the Sustainable Development Goals provided the guards, the LSSC trained them to ensure safety of lives on the waterways.
According to Mojola, the volunteer safety marshals were saddled with the responsibility of ensuring that commuters wear their personal protective equipment and provide safety briefings to commuters before trips at various jetties across the state.
Mojola further highlighted the importance of taking safety as a collective responsibility.
He added that everyone has to play their part in order to complement the efforts of the state government in curbing spread of the deadly virus.Follow us on social media
