Ogun state extends coronavirus lockdown

The governor of Ogun state, Dapo Abiodun has extended the coronavirus lockdown in the state by another seven days. The governor announced the extension during a press briefing in Abeokuta, the state capital, on Friday, May 15.

According to Governor Abiodun, one of the reasons the extension became necessary was the widespread disobedience to the rules of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) after President Buhari eased the total lockdown on the trio of Lagos, Ogun and FCT Abuja on Monday, May 4.

However, the governor did not tighten restrictions of the extension. He said the current control measures which allowed residents some vehicular movements and business activities continues.

“The current pattern of lockdown, with relaxation windows from 7.00am to 5.00pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday continues.”

He noted that this extension would be the last one if the state government noticed sizeable improvements.
