The FCT Monitoring Inspection and Enforcement team of the Federal Capital Territory Administration has taken enforcement of COVID-19 protocols to parks and recreation center to ensure that fun seekers abide by the physical distance protocol.
Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection and Enforcement to FCT Minister, Comrade Ikharo Attah who toured round the recreation parks scored the level of compliance high, but decried gross neglect of physical distancing.
Comrade Attah who had a hectic time at the Magic Land Amusement Park, Millennium Park and the Central Park, controlling both vehicle and huge human traffic, said the safety measures put in place by the management of the parks were commendable.
Comrade Attah who said he was satisfied with the compliance with the “no face masks, no entry order” want the Park owners to upscale efforts in ensuring compliance for all the protocols.
According to him, both Ministers of FCT, Malam Muhammad Bello and Dr. Ramatu Aliyu have given enough backings for the Enforcement to ensure that residents of the nation’s capital were safe through out the festive periods and beyond.
He added that all relevant agencies in FCTA were working assiduously to control the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 pandemic.
There is enough compliance, but where we have problems is the issue of physical distancing. There are face mask everywhere, people are seen wearing them and also washing there hands…the strong message from FCTA is that people should own the processes and it should show by the way we comply with the necessary measure.”
