Anambra COVID-19 Protocols Task Force Team Says Operation Not Geared At Revenue Generation

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Mr Chika Ekwenugo, Head of Anambra  COVID-19 Protocols Taskforce Team says enforcement of COVID-19 protocols is necessary and not targeted at revenue generation rather to ensure strict  compliance by  residents

Ekwenugo said that the team would sustain the enforcement in the state until people realised the need to assist government in maintaining public health.

He made the disclosure in an interview  in Awka on Sunday.

Ekwenugo said the team was not  interested in the revenue accruals from  COVID-19 violators   but was more concerned on checking  the spread of the deadly virus in the state.

He urged the public to see observation of the COVID-19 precautionary measures as a civic duty they owed the state to ensure that the virus spread was controlled for safety of all.

“The virus is real and it exists in Anambra, let us all join hands with the government to kick it out of our state,” he said.

He advised people to always wear their face-masks properly to avoid the wrath of the law as more defaulters had  been  charged to court and new  defaulters  would also be prosecuted.

It would be recalled that over 80 COVID-19 violators in Anambra  were  charged to a Magistrates’ Court and found guilty by the court  presided over by Mr Mike Anyadiegwu.

He said that they were  guilty  for refusing to wear facemasks, contrary to section 9(h) and punishable under section 12(3) of the COVID-19 and Dangerous Infectious Diseases Prevention and Eradication Law of Anambra , 2020.

Also some of  the violators were given option of  fines ranging from N1000  to N3000 or  carryout community services for two days at the Court premises or any other government establishment.
