Governor Dapo Abiodun has approved the reopening of religious centres, businesses, hotels and other entertainment centres in Ogun state.
Naija News recalls that the Ogun State government had shut down religious centres, businesses and schools in March to curb the spread of the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19).
But in a statement on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, Abidoun said the religious centres and other public places have been reopened following successful taming of COVID-19.
He, however, warned that his administration would not hesitate to go on a selective lockdown should there disobedience to COVID-19 protocols.
He said: “It stated that in the process of rebuilding the economy, the State Government was irrevocably committed to the successful implementation of the “Building our Future Together” agenda, and would ensure everything possible for people to have increased prosperity that would place the State on a sound footing towards continued development.
“It further added that government would improve on testing, just as it continues to monitor the development and not hesitate to do selective lockdown should there be any flagrant disobedience to the set COVID-19 protocols,” the statement said.
