The Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has made wearing of face masks compulsory in the state.
Consequently, he had barred banks in the state from attending to customers who did not wear face masks.
He stated this in a broadcast on Wednesday, saying the measure was to contain the coronavirus pandemic in the state.
He said, “All our boundaries with neighbouring states remain completely closed. Only people on essential services and haulage trucks with essential commodities are allowed passage after a stringent check and confirmation by the security personnel at the boundaries.
“From today onwards, it has become compulsory to wear a face mask in Anambra State. Anyone who is seen outside his home without a face mask shall be guilty of breaking the Anambra State Protocol on Covid-19.”
