Ogun State Government has announced that it has extended the ‘eased lockdown’ in the state to further curtail the spread of coronavirus in the state.
This would be the third time that the state would be extending its lockdown.
Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun revealed this on Friday. He said the extension would commence on May 25.
He added that the extension became necessary as residents were barely complying to the ordered guidelines.
He said, “I have to state that after all considerations, we are constrained to take the painful but necessary decision to continue the eased lockdown of Ogun State for another one week till Sunday, 31st, May 2020.
“As we have always maintained the delicate balance between lives and livelihood, we will continue to have our window of relaxation, from 7 am to 5 pm on Monday, 25th May 2020; Wednesday, 27th May 2020 and Friday, 29th May, 2020.”
