My advise is that; students should only board bus from a government approved park in order to avoid rape and being kidnapped; we will also make sure we continue to educate motorists on the number of passengers to take in order to prevent COVID-19; students should please make use of face masks; our theme this year is; Drive Safe, Stay Safe” Ahmed Umar said.
