The Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun today announced the extension of the covod19 lockdown in the state for another week.
The Governor in a statement while addressing journalists and newsmen stated that the reason for the lockdown extension is due to the non-compliance by residents with the safety measures to help prevent the spread of the deadly virus.
He said while addressing newsmen;
“Consequently, in view of the evidence of community transmission and poor compliance with the lockdown measures, we are constrained to extend the lockdown by another week till Sunday 24th of May.
“The current pattern of lockdown with relaxation windows from 7.00 am to 5.00 pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday continues.
“We will continue to monitor the level of compliance with the lockdown measures and incidence of community transmission and hopefully, there will be positive developments that will enable us further ease the lockdown at the end of this new lockdown period.”
The Governor also assured residents that all government officials were ready to monitor the level of compliance with the lockdown in order to ease the lockdown. The state government earlier today tweeted:
