After announcing via his twitter handle, about his intention to hold a tweet chat today, regarding Oyo State preparedness for the coronavirus, Governor Seyi Makinde came under attack from a twitter user, @AareAgo, who said “there are no visible effort that the State is taking matters of #COVID19 seriously”
“I just arrived Ibadan. I was driven thru Alakia, Iwo road, Gate, Beere, Molete and I am now at Oke Ado.
“There are no visible effort that the State is taking matters of #COVID19 seriously. Along these routes, the crowd and level of body-contacting is uncurtailed and alarming.”
Continuing, he said:
“Oyo State is visibly not prepared except it has discovered a secret vaccine for the virus. With the multitude that I saw, one incident is too much for Oyo State.
“There can’t be any preparedness if citizens are unrestrained, nonchalant & rowdy. But we will wait to see what preparedness means and what level it is.”
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has so far confirmed 3 cases of the pandemic in the state.
