Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has approved the full reopening of churches, mosques, businesses, hotels, and entertainment centres across the state.
Recall that the state ordered business facilities to partially/fully close down in March, as a measure to prevent the community spread of C0VID-19.
However, in a statement released by the Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, via the state’s Twitter handle on Wednesday, the Governor has ordered the full reopening of churches and other public places.
The statement in part reads,
‘‘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”.
