The measure is part of a nationwide exercise being undertaken by the police administration and waste management company, Zoomlion to prevent infection of the disease the public space.
Chief Director at the Northern Regional Coordinating Council, Alhaji Al-hassan Issahaku, who performed the launch on behalf of Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed, said the fumigation exercise become a necessary measure, adopted by the government to address the devastating covid-19 pandemic.
Already the disinfection and disinfestations have been carried out in public places including markets and schools across the country. Alhaji Issahaku said security installations are being targeted too since their personnel don’t only respond to security needs during critical times, but their space could become potential grounds for covid spread.
Northern Regional Police Commander, Timothy Yoosa Bonga, commended Zoomlion and the police leadership for their efforts saying this would boost morale among personnel as they went about their daily duties.
Earlier, General Manager of Zoomlion’s operation for the Northern Region, Peter Dawuni said chlorine based solutions are being used to disinfect and disinfest buildings housing police stations, cells and facilities that would be identified by the police across the Northern, Savanna and the North East Regions.
