‘‘We therefore use this medium to urge our smart card customers to preload their vending cards. To compliment state-wide efforts, we will open some of our offices to ensure our customers can vend.

‘‘Further information on these locations will be communicated soon. This message is for customers that vend using meters that require smart cards. Other customers can vend from the comfort of their mobile phones or computers by visiting any other their preferred payment channels.’’

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Government has clarified its stance on the alleged lock-down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The State Government says it did not give directive on a total lock-down of the state; as it applies measures to curb the spread of coronavirus disease.

The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, said in a statement on Wednesday, March 25; that Lagos was not on lock-down, in spite of the stringent measures introduced by the government to curb the virus.
