The auto-handwashing project, which was constructed and presented to the State Secretariat by the 2019 Batches ‘B’ and ‘C’ Corps Members serving at the Local Government Area, is aimed at curbing the spread of the Covid-19 virus in the State.
NYSC Lagos State Coordinator, Mr Eddy Megwa while commissioning the project commended the high level of creativity and selfless spirit of the Corps Members.
Explaining the project, Megwa said the Eti-Osa III Corps Members came together to raise funds to execute the project at the Lagos State Secretariat because it is the center of all local governments in the State.
He said the auto-handwashing system comprises three sensor taps and soap dispensers that work when hands are close to them, as well as a pressure pump to help with a good flow of water from the taps.
“This is Lagos and we mean business in everything we are doing. This is stress free, when you come in, push in your hands, it doesn’t require exerting pressure with your legs or hands. Stretch your hands and the liquid soap pours into it, you then stretch to the water and it pours into your hands automatically,” Eddy Megwa stated.
“As stated earlier, we are using all sensor required materials in this project to reduce physical contacts and the spread of the Covid-19 virus. It is to our honor and privilege that Eti-Osa III Corps Members came together in their best way in achieving this goal during the Covid-19 pandemic. This is unique in itself and for those that will want a thing like this, they should come to us and we will sell the technology to them.”
He further stressed that;
“This will go a long way in combating this Covid-19. With the water here being constant and connected to a borehole that we just sank, with everything working beautifully and cleared by the National Agency for Food, Drug and Adminstration Control (NAFDAC), we are good to go, and we implore people as they are coming to transact business with the NYSC, they should get themselves sanitized first at the automatic handwash point.”
