Nyesom Wike Announces Free Bus Rides For Rivers State Residents From June 1

The Rivers State Government would commence a free bus service within some part of the state. Governor Nyesom Wike made this announcement in a Twitter post on Thursday. The free bus rides would commence from the 1st of June.

According to the governor, the free bus service would only be within some local government areas in the state.





Local Government areas that will benefit from the service include Port Harcourt Local Government Area (PHALGA), Obio-Akpor local government area (OBALGA), Oyigbo & Eleme LGAs.

The project is aimed at cushioning the constraints of the Covid-19 pandemic on our citizens.

 

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, recently suspended the total lockdown of Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt Local Government Areas for six days.

In an announcement, he said: “Residents and visitors of these local government areas can, therefore, go out of their homes for their lawful businesses from  May 21 until 8.00 p.m., Tuesday 26th of May 2020, when the lockdown will be restored and maintained until further notice.





“The wearing of face masks or coverings in public spaces, including commercial and private vehicles remains compulsory as contraveners would be arrested and summarily dealt with as the law demands”.

The governor urged all residents to continue to maintain social distancing in every space. This includes vehicles, bank premises and shopping places as required by the subsisting regulations.

Weeks back, Governor Wike of Rivers State practically took over command on the streets of Port Harcourt. He went around the streets of Port Harcourt, delivering strict enforcement of the lock-down policy.

In the course of monitoring the level of compliance, Gov Wike sent defaulters to forced quarantine and screening. He also arrested violators and impounded their vehicles.
