Ogun govt orders full reopening of worship centres, businesses
Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun has ordered full reopening of religious centres, businesses, hotels and other entertainment centres.
A statement signed by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Kunle Somorin, yesterday, said the religious centres and other public places had been reopened following the success recorded in flattering the curve of COVID-19 pandemic.
“Government is aware of the excruciating implications of COVID-19 lockdown but we have emplaced measures and improved on testing to stem the tide. Empirical field research indicates that we have managed to stem community spread and treatment of the virus very well. We are convinced that opening of schools and entertainment centres would not harm our people. We would continue to monitor the development,” the statement said.
While calling on owners of these facilities to co-operate with the state government, Abiodun warned that facilities that defy these guidelines would be sanctioned.
