Yobe government advises residents on safety measures


The Yobe State government has advised residents to adopt safeguard measures against the heatwave (hot season) being experienced in the state.

Dr Mohammed Gana, the state Commissioner for Health and Human Services, gave the advice in a statement he signed and made available to newsmen on Sunday in Damaturu.

Gana expressed concern over the adverse effect of what he described as the very high temperature and intensive heat in the state.

He, therefore, advised the public to wear lightweight, light-coloured, loose-fitting clothing, stay under tree shades and environments with a lot of ventilation where the temperature is low and cool and cut down on exercise when it is hot.
