Osun Prolongs Relaxation Of Curfew By Two Weeks

1 Mins read

Osun State governor, Mr Gboyega on Thursday prolonged relaxation of the curfew imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state by another two weeks, effective from Friday, June 19.

This development follows the expiration of the initial two-week relaxation ordered by the governor on June 5.

Oyetola made the announcement in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr Ismail Omipidan.

He, however, expressed displeasure at the level of compliance with some of the relaxation guidelines, especially the wearing of face masks in public places.

The governor, therefore, warned that worship centres and markets that fail to adhere to the guidelines would be shut down by the State government.

“COVID-19 is real and Osun is not out of the woods yet. We have noticed that many of our citizens are brazenly flouting the safety guidelines put in place to curb the spread of the virus in the State.

“The government will not fold its hands while a few people jeopardise the mileage we have recorded so far in this fight. It is not yet through and strict enforcement will commence immediately. Any worship centre, market or motor park where people do not wear a face mask or maintain social distancing will be shut down,” Oyetola remarked.

He also reminded the citizens that the ban on inter-state travels remains in force, noting that any motor park that fails to comply with the directive will be shut down as well.
