1. Face Masks or Nose Masks: considering the number of people that will be on each seat especially if you are planning to travel via a public bus. It is important you take with you a face mask to prevent contracting the Coronavirus on your way because it will only be disastrous to move to another state with the virus and thus infecting more people including your family members.

2. Hand Sanitizers: it is also important that before you board any public bus, make sure you take with you a hand sanitizer. This will enable you wash and clean your hands at any given opportunity. This is necessary because it is impossible not to shake hands or touch several locations while trying to board a bus for your journey.

FGN should give presidential STRONG orders to police men on Nigerian roads mostly traveling roads to dismantle this unnecessary road blocks with log of tree & tyres which they put on many busy roads to suffer drivers collecting money from the with IMPUNITY. thereby causing LONG traffic hold ups for hours with minding, while TRAVELLERS and drivers suffer so much making a journey of 12 hours to last A day and HALF. Plz PMB Direct IGP to see to the end of this wickedness of Nigerian police on height ways.

A good idea but remember sanitizer is highly inflammable and you could put the lives of the driver and commuters at risk. The third option appears abit impossible. where can one have protective attire when health workers are complaining of its shortage for the course of discharging their legitimate duties.
