Mr. Narh disclosed that sitting arrangements at their client waiting room is structured such that a meter distance is observed between each other.
Additionally, veronica buckets with soaps and tissue papers have been planted at the entrance of the premises, and at all partner agencies such as the insurance providers, and other spots.
