We encourage that all their member have at least a sanitizer in their pocket so that as they work, they are able to also protect themselves. Also we have fliers for you people to distribute to members of the public so that they would understand what government have asked us to do which included regular hand washing and keeping distance from social gathering. So it is for this purpose we embarked on a project like this I urge you all to stay save,” he stated.
