The lawmaker representing Mushin constituency II,fondly called Omititi,tasked the council chairmen to be on guard and mount vigorous campaign, given the contagious nature of the virus people are safer staying in their homes.

 “It is a National and international pandemic so to be on a safer side we should just remain indoors.

“It is very very important that they should stay indoors,especially now that the virus is spreading through communities at the grassroots.” Olawale said.
