By Damilola Kushimo
The Community Development Committee (CDC), Isolo LCDA has commenced sensitising the residents on the emergence and deadly effects of the second wave of Covid-19 as directed by the State Government.
The committee has directed all the Community Development Associations (CDAs) within the council area to embark on the campaign in their various communities as it distributed sensitisation materials and cash to each CDA.
Speaking, the CDC chairman, Mr. Segun Olatunde, said the materials and the cash given to the CDAs were part of the Christmas gifts received from the State government.
He, therefore, urged the CDAs to remain up and doing in complementing the local government’s efforts in preventing community spread of coronavirus, emphasising that the second wave is deadlier.
Commenting on the local council’s efforts towards controlling the virus in the community, the Secretary to the Local Government, Hon. Emmanuel Olojede, noted that the council h as been doing more to ensure that the pandemic maintains its downward wave in the community as he explained that the first wave gained ground in the council area because it was new.
He maintained that the awareness measures will be sustained by the council authority and compliance will be closely monitored as he urged the CDAs to complement governments’ efforts to completely defeat the virus in the council area.
“We can see that this time around Isolo is not on the high side because we keep sensitising our people. Now that schools have resumed, we have extended our advocacy to the schools even the school buses the way they will be operating will be Covid-19 complaint. Any moment from now, the supervisory councillor for education will go round the schools to ensure that all that are supposed to be put in place are there such as sanitisers, social distancing measures and also to ensure that the students put on their facemasks,” he said.
