The Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN) has appealed to the Federal and State Governments to urgently reconstitute security operatives manning various checkpoints in the country. This, they said, would ensure smooth and effective implementation of directives on COVID-19 containment. He emphasised that a comprehensive membership of those manning the checkpoints would ensure check and balance as well as minimise abuses and excesses of security operatives. “Therefore, police should not be left alone at any checkpoint, there should be representatives from the traditional institution, civil defence, commodity association, civil societies and NOA. “Traditional institution should be incorporated because anywhere in this country you have a traditional institution, people respect them more because they are closer to the masses.
