Speaking on the MaskUp Lagos Campaign, Wasiu Alabi (Pasuma) said he supported the initiative because of the need for everyone to collaborate with the state and Federal Government to combat the Coronavirus pandemic.
“This virus has disrupted our lives and we need to join hands to stop the spread. We have been told that one of the best ways to stop the spread is to use face mask. We want to go back to work because we can not continue to stay at home. If we must go back to our daily activities we must also ensure we don’t spread the virus by maintaining all the rules like social distancing, washing of our hands and the use of face mask,” the Fuji star said.
Also commenting Comedian Owen Gee noted that the lockdown has mostly affected players in the tourism and entertainment industry because of the ban against large gatherings.
“It is in our interest to cooperate with government so we can defeat this pandemic as quick as possible. As the government prepares to open up the economy, we must step up the campaign on the use of face mask by all.”
A representative of the SDGs Office, Lekan Fatodu, expressed confidence that the support of the two celebrities would go a long way in driving compliance with the use of face masks among residents.
