He said, “You must protect yourself and also protect others. Government is doing everything possible to save our lives

but we must also be conscious of the existence of the virus by doing everything possible to comply with all instructions issued by relevant agencies.”

He added that on no account should any staff be found flouting these directives. Prof. Oloyede, who sympathised with all the families of those who had lost their loved ones said, “We must ensure that we end the scourge of the virus. As an Agency, we have put in place all necessary measures to protect our clients who are mainly students. Our One-Time Password (OTP), Ticketing platform, among others, are some of the initiatives put in place by the Board to curb the spread of the virus.”


Recalling that Federal  Government had directed staff on GL.12 and below to work from home,Prof. Oloyede said, "It’s not enough for the exempted staff working from home to be found going to all sorts of places and interacting with all kinds of

people. The essence of their not coming to work is to reduce crowds not only in the office but every other place as well.”

Similarly, members of Management at the meeting appraised the level of compliance to extant non-pharmaceutical protocols with a view to ensuring that staff and clients alike are not exposed to the virus.
