The National President, Road Transport Employers’ Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), Alhaji Mohammed Musa, has appealed to the Federal Government to supply temperature screening devices at motor parks nationwide as part of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus.
Musa also asked the government to train members of the transport union on how to help curtail the ravaging deadly disease.
He spoke at the weekend in Abeokuta during the 11th Ogun State Delegates Conference of the association which led to the emergence and inauguration of Alhaji Akibu Titilayo (Efele)-led executive of RTEAN in the state.
The RTEAN boss, in his remarks, commended the Federal Government for the recent reduction in the price of petrol from N145 to N125 per litre.
According to him, the reduction was a welcome development that would reduce the economic hardship of the citizens.
He promised that the leadership of the union would soon meet and decide on the review of transport fares to ensure the masses benefit from the new pump price.
Musa, who pledged the readiness of the association to assist government in combating coronavirus, demanded cameras at motor parks to help monitor daily happenings.
